    I'm a bit new at this but would like to buy some VXX currently at 13.90, thinking the market is going down in the next 2 weeks. Would I buy the July or Aug 14 or 15 or is there a better route I should take. Thank you
     
  2. Short the market instead
     
  3. Why dont you just buy the Vix futures contract??

    I trade through etxcapital.com, and am long Vix
     
  4. why do you think the market is going down in the next two weeks?
