Just when you thought the panic was over, get ready for the end of the month.

Mastery pinpointed The Return of Volatility and there is cause to believe it could spark up again very soon.  The true deadline is not March 1st for the U.S. to get their shit together, it's March 27th.

The Return of Volatility

Psycho - Shower Scene

Mastery told you volatility was back in style two weeks ago.

As we predicted the bet on the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures TM ETN (VXX) has been fruitful.  The VXX has bounced back 12% since we said buy.

Where will Stocks Go from Here?

Magic 8 Ball

Mastery doesn't like the current pin action.  Time to place a small bet on volatility.

Weapons of choice for today's trading are the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures TM ETN(VXX) and iPath S&P 500 VIX Mid-Term Futures ETN (VXZ)

Fiscal Crap, Volatility returns, and maybe faith in Large Caps.

The last full week trading in 2012 was vexed by 'Fiscal Cliff' sorrows.  Its taking away everything from our equities.  Perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel with large cap stocks, four in particular.   Mastery turns to  Anheuser Busch (BUD), Walt Disney Co. (DIS), The Coca-Cola Co. (KO) and McDonald's Corp. (MCD).

Volatility - Large Pic

Just like that from $8 a share to $35, the VXX looks better.  Really?

A bit of nothing up my sleeve work from the from the brain-trust at Proshares.  They did a sneaky reverse split on the iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN 's (VXX) on Friday.


Richard Harrow - Boardwalk Empire

Stocks have been falling since last Friday, there's only one person who can help. 

If only we could hire Richard Harrow (from HBO's Boardwalk Empire) to execute the idiots responsible for plunging our stocks since last week.  In the past four trading sessions the Down Jones has erased 225 points.  The S&P has fallen 2.23% since last Friday and its all thanks to negative EU headlines.  Volatility has made a triumphant return.

Office Space - Case of the Monday's

Could be a week of the same ol' EU mess. 

Sunday night and stocks in Asia are falling thanks to the EU uncertainty.  That means a return of volatility could become the norm next week.  Thus cue the ProShares UltraShort FTSE China 25 ETF (FXP) and he iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures TM ETN (VXX).

Volatility: Out for Lunch

JCVD biting Snake

Volatility has taken a break, so should you.  Go enjoy your favorite snake.

The VIXY, VIX is taking a break and along with it the iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN (VXX) continues to sink to new lows daily.  The question becomes will the VIX and VXX bounce back?  Should we be afraid or just ignore the warning and buy up everything?
