Very good indication of BIG move in VIX coming

INDEX:VIX   Volatility S&P 500
157 6 2
Comment: So far this has proven 100% since 2013 (I didn't check further back). Returns have been a min of 8.5%. Today was a huge and took profits.
BTW, I looked at 2011. Using VXX as a proxy for UVXY, it was a challenging year.

Could you share some thoughts about how best to take profits on a VIX spike? In other words, what indicator do you look at to ascertain that the VIX spike is over? Thanks.

Thanks. Watching UVXY, sell when the 20 EMA crosses the 9 EMA on the 5 min or 15 min time frame. Watching for convergence/divergence on RSI also helps.

I've been playing around with your charts and have ascertained that if you go long UVXY when the conditions you describe are met and then go short UVXY the rest of the time, the results are excellent. Thank you for a terrific idea.
