VIX Up, Stocks Up – Butterfly Effect?
VIX is on the rise since JAN 4, while stocks keep on surging to new record highs…normally, they move in opposite direction…Keyword here is normally.
Based on cycles, a High could be due in the week of JAN8/9 – 16/17, so that could explain the protection buying 😉
What I do understand after reading several articles on the VIX and VXX positioning, is that the mass is short volatility and a break of VIX from 10 to 13, could unraffle the equity markets in a heart beat. The so called Butterfly Effect.
POLL – WHAT WILL BE FIRST: BITCOIN $10.000 or $18.000?
Total Portfolio Strategy 2018
If you want to read more about my Total Investment Strategy, then please read this update first: 2017 Performance and Total Portfolio.
Or read my latest update on the US Markets: Dow Jones Industrial, Party Like It’s 1987!
This is what I will do over the next couple of weeks/months:
- I will add monthly to a mutual fund (worldwide stocks), as I expect stocks to skyrocket into the year 2030, peak of flight to private assets;
- I will add 2% of my assets to buy put spreads AEX Dec 2018, as a hedge for my equity exposure, medium term trade (12-24 months, 2018-2019);
- I will add 7% of my assets to to my 2018-2019 eToro hedge strategy: – Hedge US Stock Market for a 20%-40% crash
- I will contribute small amounts to interesting ICO’s and tokens that pay out a periodic cash flow;
- I decreased my crypto exposure from 20% of total assets to 4% of total assets;
- I will add to my short sovereign bond strategy (rising interest rates) when rates come down a bit into 2018 or if they break key resistance to the upside.
Crypto Rating Desk and our ICO Portfolio of 100
ps. I started a new project, for and by my international students.
We analyze upcoming ICO’s and when we see a project that we like, we contribute. Our latest contribution is LHCrypto, a token that pays out a monthly cash flow, has a working business model and is active in a growth market.
We now have 15 contributions, and our goal is to build a portfolio of 100 tokens that generates a periodic cash flow (Portfolio of 100).
