SUITABILITY OF UTILIZING THIS INVESTMENT STRATEGY
Please note that the following statement is contained in Chapter 5 of Short Spider Straddles:
"Since volatility is a key factor in option premium prices, what the future holds for this strategy will largely depend on levels of volatility. We have seen that the higher the VIX (within the range of 20 to 30), the more profitable this strategy will likely be. If the VIX reverts to long-term historic norms at the 20 level, this strategy will likely be less profitable, but will still exceed the level of returns available by most alternative measures. Fortunately there is nothing that locks an investor into this strategy. We have the opportunity to measure the VIX and our investment results using this straddle strategy on a monthly, even a daily basis. If the returns stop being attractive and other better alternatives present themselves, we can simply stop using this strategy and begin using other ones."
The historical data provided in the book points to increasingly smaller returns as the VIX declines below the 20 level. Should the current extremely low level continue, investors using this program may wish to consider the suitability of utilizing this strategy until VIX levels resume to a range above the 20 level.
