Understanding VXX and VIX Futs

Folks seeing a lot of questions about why the VXX is not moving. I discussed much of this in the Monday video but I am going to try to quickly go over this here in very simple terms. The VXX is composed of the 2 closest month VIX Futures contracts. Currently, it is made up of almost all October (96%). So for the next few days whatever happens with the Oct contract the VXX will follow. October contract (and VXX) are freely traded by VIX futures traders.

After a sharp move up yesterday beyond our 27.17 target area, the VXX saw a retrace of just about 50% of that move into the close.

Market Analysis for Jun 10th, 2020

VXX - Even though I can't say that I am heavily favoring the green count we do have a setup and the R:R on call options for next week and even lottos this week is good here give the setup that we have. Straight shares could also be bought here with stops under the 28.79 low looking for near term targets in the 34.93-36.20 zone. I think we should have an answer one way or the other soon on this. If we do break the lows then I will look for another long setup once we have another bottoming signal as again bigger picture I do think we are close if we have not already bottomed.

Market Analysis for Jun 9th, 2020

IWM - Because I am counting the move up off of the 136.45 low as an ending diagonal I think it's reasonable to use the origination point as a target. This would take some extensions based on the initial move but nevertheless I will use the 136 level as the target for this purpose of short term puts (next weeks to give more time this weeks could be used as lottos). For straight shares short could be taken with stops just over the 153.56 high. which also offers an excellent R:R based on the lower target of 136.45.
