    Strategic Trade: One way to trade VIX — #SaxoStrats

    Product Manager Futures and Options / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    The nervous system in the market appears to be healthy on the surface, as measured by the VIX volatility index. Higher market prices have greased consumer confidence and borrowing in the US. The Fed's interest-rate hikes seem to be gradual and measured. What could go wrong?

    Hi Georgio. Good trade idea - thanks. Why are costs so high relative to the premium on these types of trade? Also, why not use the May...

    A pre-FOMC variation of Peter's trade idea "S&P 500 ready for a setback?" from my side:

    ES options expiry 17-mar.

    Long put spread 2370-2365 @1.75 (we pay the premium)
    Short call spread 2370-2375 @2.75 (we receive the premium)

    Max profit = +6 points (S&P @ 2365 and below)
    Breakeven = 2371
    Max loss = -4 points (S&P @2375 and above)

    Will gold rally once again following a US rate hike? — #SaxoStrats

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Gold has stabilised after correcting 50% of its December-to-February rally. Rising yields ahead of a potentially more hawkish Fed rate hike today have been the main drivers behind the latest weakness. The previous two hikes marked a low point and we are looking for a repeat through a short-dated option play.

    S&P 500 ready for a setback? – #SaxoStrats

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    We are selling the S&P 500 ahead of Wednesday's Fed meeting based on four arguments: excessive valuation, potential upside risk to the Fed's outlook, downward pressure on oil prices and expected softness in US economic data over the coming months.

    Georgio, I'm located in EU area (GMT+1), no reason for changes. Webinar archive or its copy here on TF works usually fine.
