Profiting From trading 2 Markets that Move the INVERSE from one another .........

Good Evening,

I need some help in understanding a concept .......... My thought is that , if 90% - 100% of the time ,that the VIX moves in the Opposite direction of the ES and YM ( this is theoretical of course ) , but these Markets do seem to Move Inversley from one another , almost Everyday I look over the Indexes

If this is the case, and a great setup ( Based on my trading Method ) occurs via analysis of the Chart(s) , then would it ever make since to trade either the ES or the YM in the Opposite direction that I am expecting the VIX to move ?

So if I am assuming the VIX to move to the upside, then I'd short the Ym and or the ES ( No matter if I get a great setup on the ES or YM )

This all might not be a smart way to trade , since I'm sort of going on Blind faith in trading 2 Markets Inversley of one another , when only ONE of the Charts on any given day, is likely to give me the setup I look for on any Market to place a trade

Thank you for any thoughts and comments

Correlations


I don't trade or know much about the VIX, but I do know about correlations, all of my trades are based on them: ES with YM, ZB with ZN, and the inverse correlation of 6E and DX. While these correlations work most of the time, a part of my trading methodology does require independent evaluation of each instrument. What i mean is, the correlation itself is only a part of my evaluation to put on the trade.

If you have interest in correlations in general I would highly suggest MRCI Online. I check it daily.

I'm not familiar with the VIX but is its value not derived from the S&P?

Yesterday's excellence is today's standard and tomorrow's mediocrity

Correlations don't always hold up

If you think the VIX will rise, why wouldn't you just go long the VIX?

Correlations don't always hold up and so trading a different security solely based on your opinion on the direction of the base security actually lowers your probability on the trade.

Think of it this way...

You have a 70% conviction that Security A will rise
Security B is negatively correlated to Security A 80% of the time

70% x 80% = a 56% probability that Security B will fall versus a 70% probability that Security A will rise

happyrenko,
that Grid Correlation ( MRCI ) is fantastic

Thank you for sharing

Do you know if such a Grid Correlation occurs for the Forex markets ?

I never thought to calculate out the wau in which you did, regarding the Probabilites of two " Inversely Correlated Trades "
It definitely makes sense now
