    Wife wants to head to lake house for a longer Memorial day weekend. Closing out my 20K UVXY for 1.55 per share win total 31K. I remain minimal long on UVIX and heavy long on VIX calls Sept. 30+40's with some scattered calls in the 30's. Love VIX right now but UVXY is the least optimal play IMO. GL and enjoy the long weekend.

    I don't buy today's narrative. Outlook for equities today is no different than it was on Friday. "Stocks should bounce because they were down a few days" is not a reliable investment thesis... I can lose just as much money on a $1 stock as I can a $100 stock.

    Buying everything VIX premarket. Wheat runs out in 10 days worldwide. Gas prices up to 6 Natl. avg soon. Monkeypox while a scam is going to be used to shut things down worldwide. More wars are coming, not just Taiwan but Middle East and Ghans. It is all negative for the market. Not an if but when Red Dawn final event comes. I hope they keep running market up, will keep VIXing every rise. GL

    I am not even trying to time these seas of market volatility. Just relaxing lounging around watching the UVXY reality show. Respect for those doing well in this chaos, most hit once or twice only to lose it all back and then some usually going for the ever popular Big Score. No way anyone believes so many after the fact post as we have all been seeing lately, you guys might want to seek out a much younger public audience for those just saying😉 I am simply choosing to stay to the side of this ongoing financial/economic train wreck waiting for the bottom to found before buying heavily into positions again then relaxing again as they ride back up.✌️

    All major indexes have gone down the past 6 months ranging between 10 to 50 % points. But UVXY has not moved at all. DO NOT HOLD UVXY.

    •By Mark Hurlburt:
    ~ The bear market for stocks isn’t over. In fact, it may have aways to go. That’s because — even with the S&P 500 16% below its all-time high, and both the Nasdaq Composite and the Russell 2000 Index into bear-market territory — many investors are more focused on when and where to invest in stocks than worried about the possibility of further, steep declines.

    This bottom-fishing is more reminiscent of the “slope of hope” that bear markets typically descend than the “wall of worry” bull markets like to climb. That doesn’t mean the U.S. stock market couldn’t mount an impressive rally from current levels. If it does, it more likely would be a bear-market rally than the beginning of a new bull-market leg that takes the major market averages to new all-time highs.

    A review of past bear markets suggests that, when the current bear market does hit bottom, few investors will even be contemplating that possibility. We either won’t even be paying attention, having grown so dejected as to have thrown in the towel, or will consider any sign of market strength as a bear market trap.

    That’s not Wall Street’s current mood. Bear-market psychology follows a progression that is similar to what psychologists call the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Here’s how they manifest in the stock market:

    Denial — In this initial stage, the prevailing view is that stock-market weakness is nothing more than a buying opportunity. Far from getting angry (see next stage), investors remain quite sanguine, since the market’s pullback offers an opportunity to buy stocks more cheaply than would have been the case had the bull market kept going.
    Anger — Denial becomes increasingly difficult to sustain as the market’s pullback becomes too severe. Investors’ mood eventually morphs into anger, as they rail against the unfairness of the pullback. A hallmark of this stage is where investors see the pullback as a personal affront — as if the market cares whether you or I lose money.
    Bargaining — In this stage, investors’ redirect their energies to figuring out if they can maintain their lifestyles despite the hit to their portfolio; retirees rejigger their financial plans. Investors promise to give up that fancy new car or the European vacation — the fat from their budgets — so long as they don’t have to cut bone.
    Depression — As the market continues to slide, the realization sets in that cutting the fat isn’t going to be enough. Major changes in lifestyle will be required. Near-retirees work for longer than originally planned; retirees go back to work.
    Acceptance — In this final stage, investors throw in the towel. They surrender to the bear market and stop even fantasizing about when it might end. They treat any sign of market strength as a suckers’ rally, luring the gullible into losing more money on the next leg down. Where we are now in this cycle
    My impression is that we’re no further through this five-stage cycle than the second one. There are individual exceptions, of course, since not all investors progress at the same pace. But the preponderance of the attitudes I encounter are either that the pullback is a buying opportunity (stage one) or that the market’s weakness is profoundly unfair (stage two).

    Investors’ progression through these stages must be genuine. As I noted last week, it’s not meaningful to say you’ve thrown in the towel, only to quickly jump on the bullish bandwagon at the first sign of market strength. Such a reaction is little more than stage-one behavior in disguise.

    Which brings me to recent claims that we’re seeing signs of capitulation on Wall Street. If the capitulation were real, that would be evidence that we’re in stage five. But I’m skeptical: In a genuine capitulation, there is no eagerness to detect capitulation. Key hallmarks of genuine capitulation are apathy and indifference.

    Not all declines go through all five stages, of course, just as not all corrections turn into major bear markets. So this discussion doesn’t mean the market still has a lot further to fall. But if the bulls want to claim the force of contrarian analysis to support their belief in a rally, there needs to be genuine capitulation. Otherwise, the bulls’ arguments are simply evidence that the market’s decline is in early innings.

    Down 3.35% from ATH on my portfolio. Just saying. You're all negative, as I was, on the markets overall, and I've lost about 150k DKK chasing the inevitable crash. Made nothing on the actual pandemic crash. Since 2008. Look at the charts. Look for chances to buy quality at bargain prices (2020, OMG, this is why I'm up more than a hundred percent, not because I'm the brilliant investor.) forget about UVXY, but quality stock when the UVXY is booming,, that once every decade.

    Red Dawn says thank you Brandon. I wonder what impact this will have on the economy? Yea you are probably right the market has hit it's bottom LMAO!!!! Motorists across the U.S. are grappling with gasoline prices that are reaching new records almost daily, but the pain isn't evenly distributed across the nation. Take the handful of locations where a gallon of regular fuel now costs as much as the federal minimum wage of $7.25.

    It's a painful threshold that prices at the pump have reached at nine stations — all in California, according to GasBuddy's Patrick De Haan, an expert on oil and gas prices. Granted, the minimum wage in California is far above the federal minimum wage, with workers in the state earning at least $14 an hour, but paying $7.25 a gallon or more still takes a chunk out of the typical paycheck.

    Loading VIX calls pre-market for a 72 hour trade cycle. Holding 20% asset invstment in VIX long term. Today will be glorious. The monthly expiration of options tied to equities and exchange-traded funds is notorious for stirring up volatility, and the next event takes place on Friday. Traders will close old positions for an estimated $1.9 trillion of derivatives while rolling out new exposures, all with the S&P 500 on the brink of a bear market.

    This time round, $460 billion of derivatives across single stocks is scheduled to expire, and $855 billion of S&P 500-linked contracts will run out, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. strategist Rocky Fishman.

    A recent survey by BofA Global Research showed fund managers now expect the Fed to step in at 3,529 on the S&P 500, compared with expectations of 3,700 in February. Such a drop would constitute a 26% decline from the S&P’s Jan. 3 closing high.

    The index, which was recently at 3,840, is already down around 20% from that high this year on an intraday basis - putting it on track to confirm a bear market, according to some definitions. [.N]

    "The Fed has bigger fish to fry and that's the inflation problem," said Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Hermes, who is increasing his cash levels. "The 'Fed put' is kaput until the central bank is confident that they're no longer behind the curve."

    As a result, some investors are digging in for a long slog. BofA’s survey showed cash allocations at a two-decade high, while bets against technology stocks stand at their highest since 2006.
