Strategy Description

VIX DayTrader 1 is now closed to new subscribers. However, a "sister strategy" VIX DayTrader 2 has now been opened:
https://collective2.com/details/107301515

Strategy description: Volatility/VIX has recently become a popular asset class amongst sophisticated investors - it has historically generated large returns, can be used to hedge risk, and may act as a diversification tool for typical portfolios. This strategy provides access to a professionally managed, academically evidenced and thoroughly back-tested strategy, giving the user access to a professional volatility day trader. Despite the sophistication of the underlying system, it has been designed to be incredibly simple for the end user. It achieves this by being using exchange-traded products such as VXX and XIV (inverse VIX), so that the user does not need access to futures. Moreover, the use of long XIV positions allows the strategy to “short” volatility without actually having to borrow stock, as this can lead to problems for the end-users of the system.
Using these products, the strategy switches between “risk-on” (VXX) and “risk-off” (XIV) according to a variety of metrics and indicators. The biggest advantage is the ability of this flexible strategy to buy volatility (long VXX) at times of market stress, downturns and crashes. In this way, the system can be profitable when many other successful “long-only” stock strategies will be suffering some serious losses.
The trading system is implemented as a discretionary/semi-automated strategy – the final judgement is made by a human, and includes a range of technical, fundamental, economic and news factors. Trading size might vary according to market conditions.

Most values on this page (including the Strategy Equity Chart, above) have been adjusted by estimated trading commissions and subscription costs.

Some advanced users find it useful to see "raw" Model Account values. These numbers do not include any commissions, fees, subscription costs, or dividend actions.

Strategy developers can "archive" strategies at any time. This means the strategy Model Account is reset to its initial level and the trade list cleared. However, all archived track records are permanently preserved for evaluation by potential subscribers.

About the results you see on this Web site

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.

These results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because these trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under-or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.

In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program, which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.

Material assumptions and methods used when calculating results

The following are material assumptions used when calculating any hypothetical monthly results that appear on our web site.

  • Profits are reinvested. We assume profits (when there are profits) are reinvested in the trading strategy.
  • Starting investment size. For any trading strategy on our site, hypothetical results are based on the assumption that you invested the starting amount shown on the strategy's performance chart. In some cases, nominal dollar amounts on the equity chart have been re-scaled downward to make current go-forward trading sizes more manageable. In these cases, it may not have been possible to trade the strategy historically at the equity levels shown on the chart, and a higher minimum capital was required in the past.
  • All fees are included. When calculating cumulative returns, we try to estimate and include all the fees a typical trader incurs when AutoTrading using AutoTrade technology. This includes the subscription cost of the strategy, plus any per-trade AutoTrade fees, plus estimated broker commissions if any.
  • "Max Drawdown" Calculation Method. We calculate the Max Drawdown statistic as follows. Our computer software looks at the equity chart of the system in question and finds the largest percentage amount that the equity chart ever declines from a local "peak" to a subsequent point in time (thus this is formally called "Maximum Peak to Valley Drawdown.") While this is useful information when evaluating trading systems, you should keep in mind that past performance does not guarantee future results. Therefore, future drawdowns may be larger than the historical maximum drawdowns you see here.

Trading is risky

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures and forex trading. Online trading of stocks and options is extremely risky. Assume you will lose money. Don't trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

Okay, gotcha.
