This is a buy and hold until I get 10%. It may not play out this week or in the next month. I would recommend that you back off on your position here if you are uncomfortable locking in this type of percentage of your account.

Trading Philosophy

Short the VIX. It remains a profitable strategy, but we're also going to play high percentage vertical spreads. You really almost can't lose unless you enter a trade wrong. Join us for profits and check out the wealth of knowledge and ideas through other subscriptions. I promise I won't be jealous.
