    Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Selling My VXX Position:

    Comments

    Why would you hold this thing for more than one day? It is designed to track the DAILY change in VIX futures. The instrument decays over time due the expense of rolling the futures upon expiration.

    Are you expecting volatility to reduce or was the dump of VXX for strategic redeployment of the proceeds? Thanks

    That is actually a strong increase. I am looking toward putting more money into the market and studying what happens and what the predictors are. I will be sure to read your blog for more information.

    @wsm I was thinking the same thing. It definitely decays over time. I wouldn't have held it any longer.

    39% is a nice gain over four months. I think that you sold at exactly the right time.

    I continue to believe that the Euro will fall much further in the months ahead and this should be a drag on stock prices. This should enhance the appeal of the US Dollar as safe haven. As a result, gold and other commodities are likely to come under more selling pressure in the weeks to come. Please visit http://www.kalpeshmaniar.com for accurate forecasting of markets
