How to Trade the VXX?

I’m convinced that this is the most effective trade I’ve ever uncovered…

And my back-testing proves it.

You can trade just one symbol – VXX – and consistently make money in the stock market. Regardless of what direction the market is moving.

VXX is the symbol for the iPath Series B S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN. Don’t let that long name confuse you… Its performance is based on volatility. An exchange-traded note (ETN) is very similar to an exchange-traded fund (ETF).

VXX is one of the most actively traded exchange-traded products in the United States.

This ETN tracks the futures on the CBOE Volatility Index, which portrays the price volatility embedded in the option prices of the S&P 500 Index for the next 30 days. But let’s not get lost in the nuances.

All you need to understand is that VXX is a fantastic way to grab quick, predictable profits from the trading frequency in the market.

The beautiful aspect of this system is that we don’t care if the market is going up or down, just that it’s volatile. And these days, I’m not too worried about a lack of volatility.

In fact, this is a great way to make a lot of money even if the market is sliding.

The only catch to this strategy is that you have to wait until the market and VXX give you a clear signal.

US and China are close to finalizing some sections of trade deal, US trade representative says

The U.S. and China have made progress in trade discussions and have come close to finalizing parts of a phase one deal, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said Friday.

The agency issued a statement outlining the status of discussions following a conversation that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.

“They made headway on specific issues and the two sides are close to finalizing some sections of the agreement,” USTR said. “Discussions will go on continuously at the deputy level, and the principals will have another call in the near future.”

The news helped to send major U.S. stock indexes to their Friday highs.

The world’s two largest economies have pushed for a trade agreement as they try to end a potentially devastating series of tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of each other’s goods. President Donald Trump aims to resolve longstanding concerns about Chinese theft of U.S. intellectual property and forced technology transfers, and secure more Chinese purchases of U.S. agricultural goods.

Price of Property in Malta?

“The property market is losing all sense of proportion. I know it, you know it and every estate agent on this island knows it.” This was the first line of an article in The Independent in 2005. They pointed out that in 1985 an apartment with 3 bedrooms in St Julians was sold for about 13000 Lm (30000 Euro) equivalent to 8 times annual minimum wage. The article also pointed out that the crazy property market now (in 2005) are seeing the same properties sold for 60000 to 70000 Lm (140000 to 165000 Euro) or 22 times the annual minimum wage.
What about now? IS the market less crazy? The same property in St Julians is today priced between 380000 and 600000 Euro or 34 to 54 times the annual minimum wage. A Danish proverb says that; “The trees does not grow into heaven”, or said more direct, there is an upper limit to everything. The question is; when will this 30 years property bull market end?

Danish consumer association Tænk used outdated method to test sunscreen products

Politiet har brugt svarende til 238 sygeplejeskelønninger på at beskytte Paludan i år

Hvad skaber mest værdi?

Det har kostet politiet adskillige millioner at beskytte lederen af partiet Stram Kurs, Rasmus Paludan, i år – og særligt under den fire uger lange valgkamp.

Det viser to aktindsigter, som DR Nyheder har fået.

Fra 1. januar til valgdagen 5. juni 2019 har politiet brugt 100 millioner kroner på at sikre, at Rasmus Paudan har kunnet demonstrere og deltage i arrangementer rundt om i landet.

– Udgifterne omfatter ressourcer til arrangementer og demonstrationer vedrørende partiet Stram Kurs samt den øvrige landsdækkende politimæssige indsats i forbindelse med folketingsvalget, oplyser Rigspolitiet.

En væsentlig del af omkostningerne vedrører partiet Stram Kurs, skriver Rigspolitiet.

Omkring 78 millioner kroner er gået til løn, 21 millioner er gået til det, politiet betegner som særlige ydelser, og cirka to millioner kroner er gået til indkvartering og forplejning af politifolk.

Dertil kommer udgifter til det overarbejde, som politibetjentene har oparbejdet, og det er en del, står der i aktindsigten. Det skønnes at løbe op i 30-45 millioner kroner.

Danes are the most gullible people in the world

Denmark the small kingdom in north Europe. Known for being the home for H.C. Andersen, birth place of LEGO, Carlsberg and LURPAK. However according to Transparency International its also the least corrupt country in the world, follow by New Zealand and the 3 brother nations in the north Finland, Sweden and Norway. But how does Transparency International measure this?

URNews24 asked Coralie Pring the Research Coordinator on the Survey and got this answer:

“With regards to the Global Corruption Barometer, this is a public opinion survey of the general public in countries around the world. The results of Denmark in the GCB, are therefore based on what the public thinks, knows, and has experienced about corruption in the country.”

So what does this mean? Well it means that 2/3 of the result of the survey as based on what the Danes knows and think! It has nothing to do with audit or research of whats going on behind closed doors are Christiansborg the danish parlament or other parts of the public administration. So basically this high score is based on how gullible the danes are and how good the government of Denmark are hiding the dirty laundry.

Danish politicians demands porkmeat served in public daycare.

The city councel in the town of Randers amended a new local statute regarding food served for the children in the public daycare. To promote the danish way of living the daycare institutions in the town of Randers must serve porkmeat to the children. The statute has been pushed for by councel members from Danish Peoples Party who has been looking for oppertunities to emphasise Danishness and also to promote their anti emmigration viewpoints.

Randers is a town in the farm area of Denmark and many danes view the Ranhusianere, the people from Randers, as hillbillies. Its also in these areas that Danish Peoples Party have most supporters. A bit like the KKK have in the USA.

Something rotten in Denmark?

Corruption? or Corruption! To be or not to be that is the question.
The former Finance Minister and MP, Bjarne Corydon has left danish politics to be a consultant with McKinsey an international consultancy company. That itself does not cause any alarm. However less that a year ago the Ministry of Finance under the supervision of Mr. Corydon paid McKinsey more than 300 mio DKK (40.3 mio €).

No wonder danish MPs are asking questions. Denmark are one of the few countries that do not enforce a “cool off” period on politicians. The reason might be that Denmark is one of the very few countries where politicians dont become corrupt.

Looking at the Global Corruption Barometer by Transparency International, Denmark is one of the least corrupt countries in the world. But how is that actually measured? URNews24 asked Coralie Pring, Research Coordinator at Transparancy International and got this answer:

“With regards to the Global Corruption Barometer, this is a public opinion survey of the general public in countries around the world. The results of Denmark in the GCB, are therefore based on what the public thinks, knows, and has experienced about corruption in the country.”

You might be confused. The high score on the GCB survey has nothing to do with facts but is solely based on what the people in Denmark believe and think about the government and the MPs ruling the country. So maybe we should ask the people of in Denmark:

To be or not to be… Corrupt.




Swedish courts do now follow EU rules regarding translation of judgements




Kammarrätten court in Stockholm has denied a EU citizen from another EU country the right to have his judgement translated into his language. Sweden say they follow guidelines from ECHR. However Article 6. clearly states that a fair trial include the acused understanding what the case is about and being able to understand the judgement and how to appel a decision made by the court.

The Swedish court do not seem to care about this provision.  Judge Lagmannen Magnus Ekman from Kammarrätten in Stockholm believe than all people should understand Swedish. At least he has declined translating swedish court decission into the language requested by the defendent.

It seems to be a general trend in Sweden to not follow EU laws and regulation. A number of cases the last few years have shown that Sweden is depriving justince in their courts more than ever before. Is this the end of the rightous Sweden that is promoted around the world. Home of the Nobel peace prize!
