Volatility Views 77: Volatility from a Wealth Advisor Perspective

Volatility Review:  Bob Krause pinch hits for Don in this episode. Volatility has recently jumped in corn and interest rates, but is still at very low levels when compared to a very long-term historical viewpoint. NASDAQ volatility has been moving roughly the same as S&P.

Volatility Viewpoint: Today's guest is: Randy Swan, Co-founder of Swan Wealth Advisors. He discusses:

  • Overlays
  • How, as a wealth advisor, he tailors strategies
  • How he incorporates volatility and volatility levels into his strategies
  • How he hedges the S&P 500
  • How he feels about some advisors still clinging to outmoded traditions
  • And more

Crystal Ball:NASDAQ and S&P outlook. It seems like the one thing we were looking for to juice the market and give us some vol in the near future has been taken away from us -- hence the massive selloff.
