Google Fixes Gmail Problems Plaguing VIX and More Newsletter Subscribers

Apologies to all the VIX and More newsletter subscribers who have been victimized by Google’s (GOOG) Gmail glitch that resulted in multiple emails containing Sunday’s subscriber newsletter.

According to Google's technical team and news reports, this glitch was finally resolved yesterday.

I note that a few subscribers have elected to cancel their subscription during this period of Gmail difficulties. To those who have canceled their subscriptions, I want to make four points:

  1. Google and various news reports (see links above) confirm that the problem originated with Google
  2. the multiple emails did not involve any virus (Norton and two other anti-virus programs confirm I am running in a virus-free environment) and thus did not put any subscriber at risk
  3. I elected not to communicate more than once during this period, because I was concerned about starting another chain reaction of recurring emails
  4. anyone who recently canceled their subscription and wishes to re-subscribe may do so here and receive the next 14 days free of charge

Thank you all for your understanding and patience.

Cheers and good trading,

-Bill
