I Finally Did It

After many years of desiring to complete an end to end signal that automatically communicates my buy and sell signals triggered by my program within my trading software, I finally did it. It took some clever programming but now I can instantaneously send a text message with clear instructions the moment my software signals it.

My first signal is my bread and butter volatility signal set on the 30 minute, hourly and four hourly, offered based on investors time horizons.  I use SVXY as the symbol, but in using the signal to make profitable trades, you can interchange with XIV, UVXY, and VXX.  For example, if you get a buy 4 hourly SVXY, you can buy XIV or SVXY, or buy UVXY or VXX puts.  What I don't recommend is to use a sell signal to go long volatility.  It does not work consistently enough.  There is another signal I use that I have not released yet.

For full disclosure I only trade the four hourly, and I am up 47% since January 15th with no margin. Other investors trading the hourly have had success using options.  Remember, these are high probability set ups not perfect picks, to be successful you must trade every signal, as you will lose two out of ten times.  But these are here for your education as I can't hope to know your goals and financial condition.


If you look to the right, you can sign up and receive the signals.  I priced it to make it affordable to everyone, yet allow me to recoup my time and costs to maintain and improve it over time.  I want to thank my beta testers in helping me make this a very nice offering.

Now to the week ahead.

Short Term Top?

First about last week.  All my trades were profitable and are closed (see last blog post).  First off the signal is working beautifully, and enough traders believing the lie that the Fed is ever going to raise rates just made it easier.

This week, the signals have me in watch and wait mode, with a very interesting pattern in IBB that bears watching.

My automatic SVXY hourly trade signal is being beta'd right now, and the feedback has been favorable, with some great suggestions to improve performance.  We will test for sixty day to get enough data points, and to continue to reduce any latency in the signal, and any slippage due to time to delivery. Both are solvable and are being engineered into the program.

My $50,000 to $1,000,000 trading only volatility challenge in five years is ahead of schedule.  I attached the graph for review, and will continue to post the trades live.

Enjoy the charts.

Ah Movement

OK, I two of the three directions right but made three winning trades.  Long Vix, short SPY, and when gold failed the breakout on Monday, I shorted and covered on Friday.  My new thoughts are in the charts below.  Enjoy.

Not Much Cooking.

I am just waiting on a pullback in the market, although Gold is looking decent.

$50K to a $million in 5 years on track.

On January 1st I made a commitment to trade only volatility long or short with no leverage using my one hour/4 hour signal.  So far this year I am already up 26% for the year. All my trades are posted real time on my #bobloveshawaii Twitter site.  It's free to follow.  Just so you know,  I traded Vol successfully for years, now concentrating on it as it is very profitable.

I am working on two more signals to share after I trade them through a cycle and the back testing pans out.  They will be for gold and for SPY reversal system.  Stay tuned.

Right now I am in all cash, as the four hour maxed out and the hourly topped and rolled over.  My view is another short vol set up is coming before we can buy vol long again.

Here are my charts and results.  Enjoy.
