    How much of that profit was around Feb 5th?

    You believe if overwhelming chunk of the profits was made around Feb 5th, they are going to disappear by the end of the year?

    I think anyone that focuses on VIX type ETFs, that was active or held positions through the 1st week of February, either made or lost a boat load of money and that type of event rarely happens more than once every few years. If you made money, that is great. You just can't expect to replicate that with the same strategy all the time.

    Got it. You are inclined to believe it was just a fluke.

    Well, since the highest volatility was around this time, this is quite possible. But does it matter?

    This links to trades posted on StockTwits, as they were opened and closed.Typo error by me before, 2018 year to date P/L should be +60%.I can fully understand you doubting a volatility strategy.But, as with all successful strategies, good profits are made in a few months and the other months are flat or small loss(approx 5%).
