Three of the Best Ways to Protect Against Volatility

09:04 08/05/2019

It’s time to prep for wild volatility.  In fact, the best way to do that is by diversifying among the top volatility ETFs and ETNs on the market, including:

  • The iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN [BATS:VXX]

  • The ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures UVXY 

  • The VelocityShares Daily 2x VIX Short-Term ETN TVIX 

All because the trade war is taking a turn for the worst – again.

On September 1, 2019, the U.S. will be “putting a small additional tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our country,” tweeted President Trump.  “We look forward to continuing our positive dialogue with China on a comprehensive Trade Deal, and feel that the future between our two countries will be a very bright one,” he added.

That follows another round of failed talks between China and the U.S.

At the moment, the trade battle between the world’s two largest economies has now dragged on for more than a year and a half. You may remember the U.S. shocked the markets in May after hiking tariffs to 25% from 10% on $200 billion in Chinese goods. China then retaliated and said a trade deal will not be reached unless the existing tariffs were cut.
