I sold 1/2 my DGAZ holdings yesterday @ 130 to get into TVIX.
Bought DGAZ 13MAR at 93.
A 39% gain for me on DGAZ.
BTW, this DGAZ:UGAZ method is working for me. It is simple. I like simple. Watch the DGAZ:UGAZ chart (middle chart below) for 6MA and 10MA 'convincing" crosses, then Sell and Buy (top and bottom charts) accordingly same day or next day.
With this I am not trying to maximize gains with intra day time frames, just looking for convincing 6 day MA and 10 day MA cross overs on the DGAZ:UGAZ daily chart, then act the same or the next day between ~10:00AM and ~noon. I usually wait for the market to be open for ~2 hours to establish itself before I place trades. Keeping it simple.

*Sold 1/2 for another opportunity (TVIX), not because the 6MA crossed the 10MA <= might be a bone head move.
Time will tell.

I obviously have not captured all 673% since I opened my IRA with 401k funds late last summer. But, it was there for the taking if I had simply followed this plan. This is now my main plan with over 50% of my available funds dedicated to this plan.
Also, I recently helped established a ROTH IRA for each of my adult children (early 20's). Each is following this plan with 100% of its available funds. It is simple for them to follow.
