Time To Buy Insurance On The Market?

30 March 2011 4 Comments

The market has been going up everyday it seems like.  Complacency and volatility is very low.  As such, I’m buying some option calls on the VIX (volatility index).  With the possible end of QE2 around the corner combined with tons of uncertainty in areas like the Middle East or even the debt of Europe, buying cheap insurance at this point seems like a prudent move.  I’m buying July Calls on the VIX for just a couple hundred bucks.  If the volatility index exploded in conjunction with a significant market correction, these calls will explode in value and help hedge any downside in my other positions (especially commodities positions).
