I do my best to keep subscriber newsletter information to a minimum on the blog, but I want to make sure readers are aware that I have made a number of enhancements to the subscriber newsletter. The most important change from a content perspective, is that instead of publishing two very different editions on Wednesday and Sunday, I am now combining all the content into one weekly issue, with new content.
Starting with today’s the newsletter, the Market Recap and Commentary section is being expanded into a more comprehensive The Week in Review and separate Market Commentary section. There will be an increased emphasis on a global perspective, macroeconomic issues and fundamental analysis.
Another new section, Volatility Update, tracks and analyze changes in the VIX, the VIX and More Global Volatility Index, the VXV, and a number of related indicators, such as moving averages in the VIX, historical volatility in the SPX, the VIX:VXV ratio, etc.
The new VIX and More Subscriber Newsletter will be published on Sunday evenings going forward, with the following ‘permanent’ sections:
- The Week in Review
- Market Commentary
- The Week Ahead: What to Look For
- Market Sentiment (using a proprietary Aggregate Market Sentiment Indicator)
- Volatility Update
- Asset Class Outlook (short, intermediate, and long-term outlook for ten asset classes)
- Weekly Feature(s)
- Current Investment Thesis
- VIX and More Focus Model Portfolios
- Stock of the Week
Also, as a gesture of appreciation to former subscribers, I will add one free month to any subscriber who chooses to re-subscribe.
In response to reader requests, I am also creating a detailed glossary to provide background on terms, abbreviations, acronyms and tickers I frequently refer to in the newsletter.
Thanks to everyone for all their suggestions and encouragement!
