Just about this time a year ago, many of us were finally starting to exhale in the wake of the Bear Stearns debacle. Surveying the investment landscape, I thought it might be an interesting time to try my hand at a subscriber newsletter. Little did I know just how interesting this first year would turn out to be.
Looking back, I am quite pleased with how the newsletter has evolved. It incorporates a much broader range of subjects, including global and macroeconomic themes, than generally appear on the blog. It has also provided me with a forum to talk about several proprietary volatility and market sentiment indicators, give my outlook for a variety of asset classes and even share my thinking about specific trades.
The newsletter now has nine sections that appear each week and has been molded into a format that is well-suited to recapping and analyzing the previous week as well as planning and strategizing for the week ahead. Those who are interested in learning more or who wish to take advantage of the 14 day free trial offer can get all the details at the VIX and More Subscriber Newsletter Blog.
Also, in conjunction with the one year anniversary, I am pleased to announce that I have joined forces with esteemed bloggers Jeff Pietsch of Market Rewind and Rob Hanna of Quantifiable Edges to offer a Blogger Triple Play. This bundled offer includes subscriptions from Jeff’s ETF Rewind Pro, Rob’s Quantifiable Edges Silver Membership, and the VIX and More subscriber newsletter at an annual subscription rate of $725, which is $240 (25%) off of the combined monthly subscription prices of the three services if they had been purchased individually. For more details, try Announcing Blogger Triple Play.
Looking ahead, I do not expect that the second year of the newsletter will see the VIX up over 80 again or have multiple days in which the SPX moves 10%, but whatever events do unfold, I will be there to put them in context and attempt to determine what some of the implications are from a trading perspective.
Thanks again to all who have encouraged and supported my efforts on the blog and in the subscriber newsletter.
