My own guesstimate is that 10 out of 12 expo's a year are up weeks...2 are not. And those 2 are probably nice downers. This time of year, like clockwork, normally forms an August high for a pullback/correction/crash into Sept/Oct. Like WWW, it almost never fails, some years small, some big. This year the setup is very good right now for some sort of high, I wouldn't say WWW is any lock this go round. Continuing to hold Oct VIX call spreads and waiting for all of those robots/self adjusting brokerage accounts/VIX funds shorting VIX to unwind ALL AT THE SAME TIME. A shock is coming to these VIX funds IMO...no one is prepared for ANY kind of unwind with all of this new VIX short leverage out there. Gundlach is dead right, its a complete unknown for a first real correction. This is not even a big bear call, just a mechanical lesson that will be handed out soon.

its too bad that your massive bullishness isnt allowing you to see what Gundlach is saying here...its not a bull/bear thing, its a mechanical reaction that will take place (is taking place) because there is too much new leverage in VIX related products. Even a small sell off AND the thought of bad happening could cause many of these VIX product players to run and cover. Keep selling the VIX juice is all I can say. I'll sell you some when you are buying it at VIX 15-20.

Yep, VIX is the thing that will rape the bulls, at least in the ST.

no, I wouldn't...again, Gundlach isnt spewing a big bearish call, but acknowledging a recent issue in the VIX leverage arena that will go through an adjustment.

Gundlach already right as VIX hits 15.  I let a few Oct vix calls go at this first target.
