Frequently Asked Questions

Dr K VIX Volatility Model
Why do you steer some investors away from your VIX Volatility Model ?

We strongly suggest all members who wish to use the VIX Volatility Model (VVM) familiarize themselves with the algorithm's strengths and weaknesses:

before investing any capital into this strategy.

I insist every member on our website read through and understand the way the algorithm works so they can verify for themselves if it will fit their trading style. If one is too averse to risk, they should either not trade the VVM at all or position size smaller so they will be able to follow the model's signals. 

William O'Neil used to tell me if the size of your position is outside your comfort zone, you will be more likely to take gains prematurely or override a sell stop. 

To achieve the following returns, expect sharp moves in your position at times. This can be enough to cause an investor to prematurely sell their position.
