Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Quick Summary
Vix to 40+

SocGen’s news flow index suggests the VIX is headed between 40 and 50. They arrive at this by counting “the number of newspaper articles highlighting themes related to economic strength...
Historically they have proven highly sensitive to financial assets pricing, and
often lead trends by a few months.”

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

With the VIX holding 30 (twice the level we started the year mind you) on every ‘confidence’
rally, I won’t be surprised the day she blows. Whether it is China, Germany leaving the EU, or Israel lobbing one at Iran … we are in a very fragile environment, and I’m convinced that risk assets will not be able to handle any type of shock.
This is for a variety of reasons: confidence, liquidity, regulation,
solvency, etc.

The composition of this index from SocGen is not as important as the message that
we are in an extremely volatile environment – and volatility is
lagging. Be prepared.
