Top Ways to Trade Election Year Volatility – 4/17

One of the top stories of New Year 2024 will be the presidential election.

And while there’s no way to tell who will lead the country after the votes are tallied, there is one certainty – volatility will soar with uncertainty ahead of time.

We saw the same thing before most presidential elections with the Volatility Index.

  • Before the 1992 election (Clinton v. Bush), the VIX ran from 12.47 to 20.51.
  • Before the 1996 election (Clinton v. Dole), the VIX ran from 14 to 22.
  • Before the 2000 election (Bush v. Gore), the VIX ran from 17 to 27.
  • Before the 2004 election (Bush v. Kerry), the VIX ran from 13 to 16.7.
  • Before the 2008 election (Obama v. McCain), the VIX ran from 20 to 90.
  • Before the 2012 election (Obama v. Romney), the VIX ran from 15.5 to 22.
  • Before the 2016 election (Trump v. Clinton), the VIX ran from 12 to 22.
  • Before the 2020 election (Trump v. Biden), the VIX ran from 20 to 40.

 We expect to see another round of high volatility ahead of the 2024 election, too. All thanks to uncertainty as to who could run the country, and new potential policy.

If you decide to trade the election volatility, consider these three funds:

ETF: Pro Shares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (UVXY)

As the VIX pops, so does the UVXY ETF, which was designed to match two times (2x) the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index. At the moment, the UVXY trades at $7.25.

An unknown trader turned $2k into $83k?

Ever wondered why you are losing to Wall Street in trading lately?

Let’s face the reality – many retail traders are basically riding on a horse while Wall Street pros are driving in a Ferrari in trading.

It’s no match, right?

Indeed, hedge funds and institutions are taking retail traders to the cleaners by leveraging new A.I. tech to get in and out of positions fast.

But don’t worry…A Los Angeles trader named Jack Harris was struggling with options (just like you) until he developed a new, powerful method of using nontransparent A.I. data to discover high-probability trades.
