ciscoThe field of routers and switches which has made Cisco famous is likely to change dramatically over the next few years.

Competition from HP and Juniper Networks continues to be fierce, but other players like Huawei are also hampering Cisco's development, especially in China.

We believe, however, that Cisco's strength lies in its considerable experience which, in our opinion, will enable it to... CLICK HERE for the complete analysis

Summary

- VIX shorts are currently near a 5-year high.

- Spot VIX has been realizing low volatility.

- There is a better relationship between the net positioning and the market.

I have been a regular contributor on SA when it comes to the topic of volatility. Naturally, I receive a number of questions being posed to me in regards to various topics. However, as of late, I have been getting questions about the heavy short interest in the VIX futures and whether this means anything. Of course, the question can be posed more bluntly. Does the heavy short interest in the VIX futures mean that we are about to see a bout of increased volatility in the near future?

Now I have my opinions and thoughts. However, I also let the data educate me. In this case, I will walk through the historical data on the VIX futures with you and perhaps we can answer some questions, and perhaps we can get some more interesting questions coming out of this exercise.

Now let's look at where the VIX shorts currently stand:

In addition to this, as you don’t own the asset there is no need for large capital investment. The basic principle of this form of investment and trading is a simple one. However, albeit straightforward it would be prudent to enlist the support of a professional such as the CMC markets, an online trading and investment company.

The recent United States Presidential election has, as would be expected caused some nervousness in the markets, however careful analysis is required to determine the possible impact on the markets over the coming months and in particular the impact on spread betting.

To look at this in detail we need to consider the principles of spread betting. There are different methods of spread betting but we will concentrate on online trading. This provides an excellent method of monitoring the markets and managing individual spread betting. We have already touched on the advantages of the process but in addition to this a key factor is the fact that spread betting is considered to be gambling and as such any profit is not subject to taxation. Unlike some forms of trading the investor does not buy shares but buys a stake (points). In addition the investor can also sell their stake. The point at which the stake is sold is the important factor as this will dictate the profit (or loss) that will be made. Spread betting allows the trader to trade on the price of movement of thousands of financial markets including commodities, indices, stocks and shares.

Trader Training - Be Afraid of the Fear of Missing Out
Traders, particularly those who need to make money rather than those who would like to make money, tend to have a fear of missing out. They hear about a trading idea or find an opportunity with their own effort and make the trade with less thought than they might put into buying a microwave. They can invest thousands of dollars on an impulse, much like the drunken gambler who throws down $1000 on Five Red.
