Welcome To Strategic Options

Recently, I did some work for Registered Investment Advisor. The Owner / Portfolio Manager who wanted a strategy that incorporated a long & short volatility portfolio to complement his traditional allocation portfolio. In addition, the portfolio is algorithmically traded, not driven by pundits, CNBC or what should happen so it added another lay of protection in this market. (Because let’s not forget... Someday the Bernanke is going to have to stop buying bonds.)

Oddly enough, after the results were presented the client was not interested. Regardless, let me make it clear this is my algorithm. (No money was exchanged and no formal agreement was set, if you were worried.)

You can see the result below. This a mix of VIXM, SVXY and the algorithm. You can see the rest image below.

I’m interested in finding a home for this profitable algorithm. I have the capability to swap out any ETF or stocks in place of VIXM and SVXY and I can set the percentage allocations. (I even threw in NFLX, just to see what would happen.)

With that said, please contact me if you want to see an initial demonstration of the profitability of volatility portfolio. If that doesn't work feel free to check out some of my current winning stocks below.
