I personally think short equities, so long VXX.

Wednesday FDX reports in AM, if they don't beat big time, I say market dips, also FED mtg Tues/wed, friday option expiration, oil not done sliding yet, Russian rates spike, rubble crashing, all says volatility. I had VXX pulling back just a bit (your diamond here), bought early today, and then up again, and today CAT closed below double bottom 90.00 , believe it completes to TL, as K posted earlier, helping VXX up. TZA finished strong. Thanks for that CAT post K, really made me a believer.

A believer in what?

Your charting abilities, your CAT chart, and CAT's next move... :) of course. (But I am a believer also, and that has nothing to do with trading). I have two adult disabled daughters, lost a baby boy who had down sydrome, and we are raising my daughter's little angel. I have dedicated the rest of my life to being the best trader I can be to set aside a trust fund for both of them, when God calls me home. Life is all about turning tragedy into opportunity, and unconditional love, and the healing power it brings. I have come to trust you, and a couple others here in tradingview. Thanks for sharing your great charts (when you don';t have to). It is greatly appreciated.

I'm very touched by your conditions and your words. But of course, I'm not always right - so please don't take everything I present as a slam dunk, especially considering your goal, okay? :)

No worries. Disclaimer expected and accepted. I probably over think things, as you have noted, because the stakes are high, I simply cannot fail at this. Your comments are a blessing to me.

I'm very pleased to hear it:) I'm an overthinkiner as well. When in doubt, I always take market conditions into consideration. But I find correlations mind boggling and ultimately useless.

I'm short as well. No position in VXX at this time - but I won't be able to be here much the rest of the week

Does this same pattern show up in the $VIX? I find the $VXX to be a very skewed product and have had losing positions in the past a result. It's not as correlated as others ex. $/Yen and $FXY , Euro/$ and $FXE. Just my 2 cents but still an interesting idea.

I don't know as I don't get intra day on VIX. But I trade VXX, so that's what I follow. It's true the correlation is odd.

I did a quick correlation test in Excel last summer on the daily close for multiple time frames and the correlation wasn't that great.

I only consider short positions on $VXX as I've bled too much trying to get it to piggy back $VIX to the upside.

7 AM est, pre market future US just tuned down 100 points, something's brewing, storm clouds gathering, ruble effects of rate spike to 17%, oil down again, heading to a 4 or a 3 pefix? think your diamond goes up.
