Yes indeed – if the year ended today it would be a pretty good one for global equity investors. Will it look better or worse on December 31st? I have no idea. But it will look different.

Volatility Spiked. Now What?
Article By: Charlie Bilello

Shorting volatility is still not a free lunch and stocks still tend to go down in the short-term when volatility rises. The extreme low volatility regime that we have been operating in for much of this year is likely coming to an end.

VIX-Leveraged ETPs And The 5% Contango Rule
