The strategy

The strategy is Vega positive to take advantage of increased IV during a VIX spike, but not give up any profit potential during an IV decline/vol crush

Portfolio size:The model portfolio is based on a 10K account. When trading VIX, the strategy is very scalable with excellent liquidity

Trades are a combination or debit/credit spreads and iron condors, based on the market contitions

When creating this trade, we wanted to derive a trade based upon VIX futures that was not dependent on contango for its gains.

Why We Are Different?

We emphasize options education in a dedicated forum where the strategy is discussed in great details.

We place all trades in our own account and returns are based in real fills, not hypothetical performance.

We control risk by position sizing and would typically utilize only 80% of the portfolio.

Please note that we report returns on the whole account (not return on margin).
