VIXTrader https://collective2.com/details/106901765: In recent months, there were a few strategies that performed very well with high return and low drawdown.Among which most outstanding are VIXTrader, 4QTiming FutNQ: https://collective2.com/details/105498679 The characteristics of both strategies are: good performance and low drawdown since Nov,2016 post election rally, hold position for a few months and long only. There were quite a few VIX strategies in the past in C2 that were performing pretty well but they could not time market, which means when market was going up they got good performce, but when market was going down, they got big drawdown. Now are VIXTrader and 4QTiming FutNQ doing differently from past VIX strategies? Look at how market perform since post election: all induces kept going up, without much of a correction. In this situation, anyone longing XIV for a few months could get the same performance, and small drawdown. So we have not seen how these 2 strategies perform during big market down days. I am not saying they can not perform well in the future. I am saying these strategies have not be tested by big market correction. If there is no market correction in near future, they can continue performing well, even for months and years. PS, I saw you said it is doing a lot of small trades. It doesn't make much of a difference, as in a strong up trend market, it doesn't require good market timing to perform well.
