Interesting concept. I moved from holding overnight to day trading to minimize black swan risk. Doesn't eliminate it but reduces it. Some of what you suggest can be accomplished by taking options positions instead of spot or futures. I have considered that but I am not happy with the fills in the futures option markets.
