With equities continuing to battle upward, the VIX remained in cooling mode. The 2x lev' bullish instruments of TVIX and UVXY settled lower by -7.7% and -8.0% respectively. Near term outlook offers subdued volatility into mid March, before viable hyper upside into April-May.
*first, an update on the VIX, which saw a net weekly decline of -3.5%.
As for TVIX/UVXY, they look set to weaken for another 2-3 weeks. That will probably equate to another 15/20% lower, not least as they are also prone to the issue of statistical decay.
*I am seeking to be long VIX from mid March onward.. and all the way into May/June.
VIX 40/50s looks due in the next equity wave lower... and if so.. TVIX/UVXY will have risen by at least 4-5x.. from whatever level they are trading in mid March.
