    Contango, Decay, Negative Daily Rollover, Fee's, Etc

    will ALWAYS work in the shorts favor!

    Remember, out of 265 trading days in 2011, the VIX was up ONLY 95 trading days.

    And out of the 95 UP days, the VIX went up 10% or more on only 19 out of 265 trading days- just 7% of all trading days last year.

    And in 2010, out of 265 trading days, the VIX went up only 91 trading days.

    So, what the math tells you is that the VIX will be DOWN 70% of the time. It will only go up 30% of the time.

    In sum, longs will always lose in the long run. Smart longs TAKE PROFITS the minute they get them!
