Have you ever wanted to hedge your portfolio, but didn’t know how?
Have you ever wanted to trade “volatility,” but you were not sure how Contango is different from Backwardation or why it is important?
There are a plethora of VIX-based products on the market today, and not a single one comes anywhere close to reproducing the VIX price movement over time. You may think that the VIX-based ETF you bought will protect you in a market down turn, only to find that your VIX-based EFT lost half of its value while the VIX was moving sideways for the last few months.
We have built a volatility trading system that gives you an advantage.
We call it, VolVantage.
VolVantage Trade Alerts eliminates the complexity. VolVantage turns complexity into simplicity and simplicity into profits.
VolVantage does NOT use any options, futures, or short selling. You will NOT need to study options for years to become an options guru, in order to become a profitable trader. VolVantage does all of the difficult work for you. You only need to know how to buy and sell a stock.

GETTING STARTED VIDEOS
Jim gives an overview of the VolVantage trade so you can learn how the details of how it works.
We have designed and developed many volatility trading systems over the last fourteen years (since the inception of VIX Futures). No volatility trading system that we know of has produced the reward versus risk metrics, delivered by VolVantage. We have built comprehensive, adaptable models, which have been thoroughly vetted, and optimized for risk vs. reward in disparate market environments. Our eight VolVantage models have produced average annual returns ranging from 80 to over 120% per year in simulated twelve-year trading environments (i.e., back testing with knowing the price data). The VolVantage trading methodology, which we have implemented for the VolVantage Trade Alert Service has produced the following simulated monthly trading performance:
VolVantage has designed and implemented a robust risk management methodology.
VolVantage integrates these indicators into adaptive trading strategies to maximize our risk versus reward ratio. VolVantage has been engineered to produce the highest probability to gain most profit, with the least amount of risk.
The biggest challenge was that if Risk Management disciplines were too tight, profitability got severely impaired. We could hedge away all of the risks, but that would hedge away all of the profits also!
We have produced a back-tested and model performance, from a perfect back-test that produced over 120% annual returns to a rigorous, well-rounded and balanced model that produced 100% annual returns using my rigorous model and robust trading disciplines, with data going back to April 2004. The chart below illustrates the maximum Drawdowns in the modeled VolVantage trading system. The BLUE area, in the chart below, represents the maximum drawdowns from the absolute highs, regardless if you entered in the middle of a trade. The maximum drawdown if you enter mid-trade at the absolute peak was 30.5%. The RED area, in the chart below, represents the maximum drawdowns from the absolute highs, but only from the start of a new trade (i.e., you did NOT enter in the middle of a trade). The maximum drawdown if you enter only at the start of a new trade was 18.1%. I don’t know your risk tolerance level, but for myself, I can certainly handle an 18% drawdown for a trade that averages between 80 to 120% per year!
