Dear Profit Takeover reader,

I give you my VIX traffic light update every day…

Because VIX tracks the volatility of the market

And volatility is one of the BIGGEST tools I use to find asymmetric options on a daily basis.

One of the words I use to describe VIX and VIX futures is contango

Which is what we are seeing for VIX futures at this very moment.

Here’s a clip of me explaining contango and what makes it so important for VIX and trading options…

Until next time,

Mark Sebastian
Founder, Profit Takeover

My VIX light is yellow again today.

We VIX is down to 22.49 from up over 23 this morning…

The S&P 500 has been bouncing between 4470 and 4480 this morning –

VXX is still trading at a huge premium to its NAV because of Barclay’s update –

I am expecting wild moves for volatility.
