The sharp decline in stocks is creating a NEW BULL MARKET…
And the chances are pretty good that you’re going to completely miss out…
Unless you click here right now (before 12 p.m. ET – that’s a hard deadline). Honestly, if you can give me a few minutes of your precious time, it could mean the biggest potential options profits of your life.
NOTE – last time this happened, I booked total gains of 363.6%.
It’s not the first time I’ve written about this type of bull market move. Earlier this year I wrote an article about “the next bull market.”
“The VIX had just hit historic lows and the market was climbing toward all-time highs. Low volatility means that investors are not fearful about the future prospects of the market.
And as you can see below, it is plainly evident in the investors’ fear gauge, otherwise known as the volatility index, or VIX. In fact, we haven’t seen levels this low since early 2007.”
But before I go any further, let me give you a simple summary about the VIX and how it works…
What the Heck is the Volatility Index?
The Chicago Board Options Exchange’s Market Volatility Index, or the VIX, measures the implied volatility of the S&P 500 index. It represents investors’ expectations of volatility in the S&P 500 over the next 30 days.
Higher VIX values indicate anticipation of higher stock market volatility, while lower VIX values indicate the expectation for lower stock market volatility.
The stock market tends to “take the stairs up and the elevator down.” And that means higher volatility is usually associated with lower prices.
If investors think equities are going lower, they may think the move will be accompanied by increased volatility. Therefore, the price of the VIX or volatility will go higher.
Basically, low volatility reflects investors paying less for future downside protection. Paying less for downside protection means investors are less concerned about the possibility of downside . . . so low volatility means investors are becoming more “complacent.”
A low VIX represents a complacency and lack of awareness of possible downside.
It’s kind of like a person foregoing hurricane insurance because there hasn’t been a big storm in a few years.
Historically, when we see extremely low volatility like we’ve seen until this week, a push higher is right around the corner.
That means equities could experience a sharp decline….and that is exactly what is happening right now.
The recent decline in stocks is creating a tremendous opportunity to profit from the higher volatility.
This is why, in my opinion, I think we are entering into a new bull market . . . a bull market in volatility.
Next Bull Market: How to Profit
As you can see in the chart below, we’ve seen two other instances over the last 24 years where volatility hit all-time lows.
The last time we saw volatility hitting new lows, my trades delivered total gains 363%. The S&P returned 1.38% that year.
The same thing could happen in 2018.
But what about now?
Well, as you can see in the chart below, volatility is back and is here to stay.
