Which VIX contract to use for 6 month horizon?

  1. I've never traded VIX futures and actually never held any futures contracts at all for more than a day. So I was just wondering if there are any successful VIX swing traders out there who could offer insight on which contract(s) it's best to play for a possible 6-month hold. Obviously there'd be at least one roll in there, so do I start with the front contract and roll them or pick something farther out right from the start? Any other tips such as how to best time the entries/rolls would be much appreciated as well.

  2. Great articles. Thanks!

    He devotes 12 hours a day to it, not an easy market to trade.
