VIX Trading System & Backtesting Tool

VIX Trading SystemWe want to trade like snipers, and the VIX Trading System is our trusty “spotter.”

The widely followed VIX is a measurement of the S&P 500’s expected movement over a 30-day period. Most traders monitor the VIX to measure risks in the stock market, but this is short-sighted. To see the clear picture, traders must follow VIX Term Structure.

Why You Should Follow the ENTIRE VIX Term Structure

By focusing on the S&P 500's movement over a 30-day period, it's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. Check out this example:

NOVEMBER 15, 2019

The VIX (30d) was trading at 12.07, and the 9-day VIX was 9.67.  This is considered “normal”.

FEBRUARY 17, 2020

The VIX (30d) spiked 226% from $12.07 to $39.16, but the action was hidden in the 9-day which jumped from $9.67 to $54.74, a 466% spike higher.

MARCH 16, 2020

The VIX (30d) continue to rise to $82.69.The 9-day VIX, again, tells the most accurate picture of the current trading environment.

The VIX tool got me flat my 401k and IRAs – I missed the down move in both accounts, which has been a huge relief.
