Six months ago it was trading near $9 bucks. Silver has dropped 20%, yet stock has dropped 60%...All the small to medium miners I check are under $5 bucks and some are under $1 dollar. Why are they just letting there stocks trade to possible bankruptcy levels. Why don't they buy stock back with the reserves they say they have?
VIX Inverse Funds/Notes have turned from a volatility investment to implied or controlled volatility Investment. Implied volatility is what they fix it at. It should now be called a Disaster Note. That is the only way this investment will ever continue on a Northerly Trek.
I rarely trade it anymore. If I do its on a very strong market Friday with possible issues that can worsen over weekend. This Note is more fixed then its ever been. It goes down a lot on Market down days, so you cannot rely on market or TRUE market volatility anymore...Good Luck!!!
Does any of these VIX inverse funds pay what they should using basic logic?...NO...These are controlled notes that may not go up anywhere near the way they went down. All of these Inverse VIX products are junk. They are glorified lottery tickets at best. If you think the markets is going to turn down for a substantial time, I believe your best bet is shorting the indexes or other products like DXD, SH, PSQ, and RWM. Good luck!!!
It may not be a holiday product next year like this year, but its at the top of the list for most this year. Its obvious that GPRO will have to diversify, otherwise they will fall in the black hole of 1 hit wonders. Other people can do or will be able to do what GPRO does now, but can others do what GPRO will do in the future?...That's the question!!!
Large swing in TVIX price today...High $2.99 and a low of $2.52...One penny from the magic 3 bucks. There is so much $$$ stopping this baby from its logical northern trek. I would love to know what input this TVIX trading manager is getting to trade TVIX notes. It must be like a dam with one constant leak and many weak spots...One day soon his finger will not work anymore. Lets hope it stays solvent until then!!!
Just a matter of time when the boys come knocking on Credit Swisse's door with something besides just unethical practices. What would you do if your broker recommended TVIX?...For one thing, he would not be my broker anymore, and two... I cannot say on Yahoo Finance!!!
This is insane. Is it Insider trading? There have posted only good news, including a ton of Call buying!!! Figures do not match actions by "A LOT!!!
Your right its a game. See over here "Strong Call Options", then the calls are now falling and puts more expensive. There is no way to know for sure the true flow of this market. KIng is suppose to have only 3.9% short, yet this turn is well organized!!! They throw bones, and then rush in to pick them up before anyone can feast on them!!!
