    So with the improvement in earnings, are companies no longer seen to be overvalued using p.e ratios for example?

    Despite high valuations, CAPE of SP 500 at 29x, equities can continue to climb. Little bit of exuberance in the late stages of a bull market.

    Good rule to live by...It depends what risks one wants to hedge at times, e.g. systemic non-systemic. It could make sense to buy VIX futures when...

    UPDATE: Closing VIX strategic trade with a gain — #SaxoStrats

    Product Manager, Options Trader, Educator

    We are closing the position on the 14/16 19 April call spread that we had initiated on March 17. Volatility has expanded as expected on geopolitical concerns and upcoming first-quarter earnings. We do not foresee the VIX index moving up further in the remaining week till expiration. So we are closing the position today for $1.05, achieving a net gain of $0.75 per contract, or over 200%.

    Strategic Trade: One way to trade VIX — #SaxoStrats

    Product Manager, Options Trader, Educator

    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...

    Very valid point about size of contracts....I prefer to only short VIX when it is at market extremes though. But as you say there are many scenarios....
