Volatility Voicemail: Reader questions and comments

  • Question from SoloHan - Great show! Just discovered it and I am working through the back catalog as we speak. I just have one question so far, and I apologize if you have covered this in the past. I am an avid VXX trader. It’s a core component of my portfolio along with SPY and FB. I have heard Mark dismiss TVIX in the past as only for very short- term trades and if you by-and-hold VXX, you will lose money. Can you explain this please? What am I doing wrong by investing in VXX? Thanks again for this insightful program.
  • Question from Sea Shanty - Can you please explain the difference between RVX options and IWM options? Are they not both ways to trade Russell volatility? Luv the show. Mark is a great host and Jared brings that rural Virginia sensibility to volatility. Keep ‘em coming
