Most investment portfolios are totally unprepared for war.
In times of conflict inflation rises, gold and commodities outperform, while stocks, bonds, and cash underperform. A typical portfolio of 60/40 + cash is the worst portfolio, particularly on a real return basis.

I'm not up on the filing lingo. I don't quite follow what happened. I just do this for fun on the side and bought this because the market is unsustainable looking at the macro side. Can someone explain to a dumb old dog?
$VXX US President Joe Biden says the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
$VXX CNBC’s Jim Cramer said not too long ago that inflation is finally peaking, which is good news for stocks that have been trampled in recent months.
They are idiots and have zero clue how anything actually works
Sell in May… VXX continues to be a decent swing trade imo
Barclays suspended new share issuance, hence the 20%+ spike on a day when volatility itself is down. This has always been a short term play, usually with options, always keeping in mind the concept of contango.* Not sure how much this move from Barclays messes with that.
In the past, it has almost never been a bad idea to sell a covered call on big days like today. (Even though yesterday was also a big day.) As the price usually retreats quickly. That is what makes a spike so pointy. The other side of the spike. If you didn't have shares to cover a call, the next choice would be to buy puts. I probably wouldn't chase at this point, even if the world's problems aren't going to be solved by next week.
*I believe the same thing applies to that Bitcoin futures ETF they started last year.
$VXX Inflation is high, but has it peaked?

iPath® S&P 500 VIX Short-Term FuturesTM ETN
The iPath® S&P 500 VIX Short-Term FuturesTM ETNs (the "ETNs") are designed to provide exposure to the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term FuturesTM Index Total Return (the "Index"). The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection. The ETNs are unsecured debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of or guaranteed by any third party. Any payment to be made on the ETNs, including any payment at maturity or upon redemption, depends on the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due. An investment in the ETNs involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal and may not be suitable for all investors.
The Index is designed to provide access to equity market volatility through CBOE Volatility Index® (the "VIX Index") futures. The Index offers exposure to a daily rolling long position in the first and second month VIX futures contracts and reflects market participants’ views of the future direction of the VIX index at the time of expiration of the VIX futures contracts comprising the Index. Owning the ETNs is not the same as owning interests in the index components included in the Index or a security directly linked to the performance of the Index.
