*first, an update on the VIX, which saw a powerful net weekly gain of 32.7%

In the near term, the VIX 28/32 zone looks a relatively easy target. If sp'1950/25, then VIX 35/45.

As for TVIX and UVXY, the net weekly gains are not exactly inspiring, relative to the gain in the VIX.

However, Friday did show that TVIX/UVXY do have their moments of glory. If would seem another 50/60% upside is viable next week... if the main market declines by at least a further 4%.

*I am long VIX, via option calls, and hold across the weekend, seeking my next exit in the 30s.
