4. Remember that currently the markets are highly correlated. Buying a sector ETF in the U.S. today often has a high correlation to a country ETF thousands of miles away from the US. Many ETFs are overbought today as the RSI on the SPY was 95 last night. In our universe we follow dozens of ETFs including country fund ETFs and they are showing the same characteristics. Most moved up together and most will continue to rise and fall together. Buying or shorting many likely means you are buying and shorting the same thing, but you have heightened your risk as you have more capital invested that is highly correlated. Diversification today is partially a myth due to these correlations. Therefore proper position sizing and understanding correlations are more important today than it’s been in many years.
2. Lower exposure within sectors. Buying all energy stocks and ETFs at the same time is essentially buying one thing. If energy prices rise you likely win, if they fall you likely lose. The diversification is a mirage. You were basically long one thing (energy) and as that went, your portfolio went.
3. On longs, consider buying way out of the money puts for catastrophic protection (I know a number of professionals who use this strategy). And on shorts buy way out of the money calls. This insurance will protect you from the “Black Swan” and is better than a stop because it protects you from the overnight risk.

The purchased short-term put option will make money when the S&P 500 moves more than the expected 16% implied volatility that you purchased it at. The written 1 year put option out of the money will make money as that long term implied volatility falls, but if you hold it to expiration it will make money as realized volatility comes in less than the 25% implied that you sold it at. We could ignore the delta-hedging aspect of this position, but it would leave us with directional risk in the markets which we might want to avoid.
By examining the skew and term structure of implied volatility, you can see that options with longer maturities have higher implied volatilities than options that expire soon. In addition, we still see a pretty strong skew, meaning that out of the money put options are trading for quite a bit higher implied volatility than at the money put options. This structure provides a very good way to take advantage of a view that realized volatility will pick up soon while long term volatility will be lower than the ~24% that out of the money put options are trading at.

The question is how to profit from the idea of volatility returning to the market when you are generally an option seller and want to take advantage of implied volatility being higher than realized volatility. The key lies in the tenor of the options.
Historically, volatility remains high after market bottoms from major market corrections
Historical 30-day volatility has recently hit a low of below 12%. A volatility of 12% means that we are experiencing daily moves on the S&P 500 of about .75%. My belief is that this is much too low. When top economists such as Krugman and Morgan Stanley’s Stephen Roach are placing 40% odds of a double dip global recession by the end of 2010, I find it improbable that we can expect daily moves of less than 1%. In addition, the historical periods following the great depression’s market bottom and the Japanese asset bubble bottom were ripe with volatility. For over 7 years after the market bottoms the returns remained turbulent.
Options with longer lives have higher implied volatility.
Volatility is an asset class that trades under different regimes. During very calm periods with more economic certainty and stability, volatility trades at very low levels. When corporate earnings become uncertain, GDP growth is unknown, and jobless rates are high, volatility tends to shift and trade at higher levels. This might seem like an overly simple concept, but it is important to keep in mind at all times when trading options. The question becomes: are we in a high volatility regime, a medium volatility regime or a low volatility regime?
In 2003, SMP Marketing LLC made an addition to the company with the decision to build a new distribution center in Eau Claire, Michigan. This addition operates as Southwest Michigan Produce Center and is owned and operated by SMP Marketing LLC, Akin & Porter Produce, Moore & Porter Produce, and Costanza Farms. We built a 40,000 sq. ft. refrigerated facility, which is open year round for repacking and distribution purposes. This new facility is equipped with a state of the art ammonia refrigeration system and is Primus Labs verified. During the months of June thru October, this location has allowed us to overnight deliveries to the Midwest, Eastern, and Southeastern regions. The ability to overnight product gives the buyers an added option of making changes to their orders just hours before deliveries, giving the buyer more control of warehouse inventory levels. Our Tennessee location handles our consolidation from November thru May, which from that facility we are still able to deliver all the same locations with as little as two days notice. In addition to our two distribution centers, SMP has three addition sales offices, one in Valdosta, Georgia that handles all southern vegetables, a second office in McAllen, Texas which specializes in onions and watermelon from Mexico and Texas, and a third in Farmington, Missouri. As with all of our locations, we have quality control personnel on sight to inspect the product before shipment.
Our team is experienced and well versed in the produce business.
SMP Marketing LLC represents over fourteen different growers in Southwest Michigan consisting of, but not limited to, the following items: cucumbers; pepper; beans; summer squash; winter squash; eggplant; tomatoes; roma tomatoes; pickles; hot peppers; mixed greens; cabbage; corn; and apples. Our products are grown and packaged using some of the latest technologies to ensure product safety and quality. From GPS units on the tractors, to stainless steel packing lines, we are committed in keeping our cost competitive without compromising higher standards.
SMP Marketing LLC was formed in June of 2002 by conjoining three very successful companies, Cal M. Seel and Son, Akin & Porter Produce, and Moore & Porter Produce. This merger was made with the sole intent to service our customers with a more constant supply of high quality and service that they deserve. With our companies having locations in Michigan, Tennessee, Texas and Georgia, this gives us the ability to consolidate and shorten the transit times to all our customers throughout the United States.
While Alpha Gamma Delta does not have any official symbols, it does have official flowers, jewels, and colors. Alpha Gam's flowers are red and buff roses, with green asparagus plumosa fern. The jewel is the pearl. The colors are red, buff, and green. The armorial bearings of the fraternity was designed by founding member Emily Helen Butterfield in 1906.
Alpha Gamma Delta (ΑΓΔ) is an international fraternity, founded on May 30th,1904 at Syracuse University. The fraternity promotes academic excellence, philanthropic giving, ongoing leadership and personal development, and a spirit of loving sisterhood. 1 Also known as "Alpha Gam", Alpha Gamma Delta's current membership exceeds 170,000. There are currently 182 collegiate chapters, and over 250 alumnae clubs. The longest running active collegiate chapter is Delta Chapter at the University of Minnesota. However, since recolonization in 2010, the oldest active collegiate chapter is the Alpha Chapter at Syracuse University. Alpha Gamma Delta is a member of the Syracuse Triad along with Gamma Phi Beta and Alpha Phi.
Its vision is "Live with Purpose." 4
Alpha Gamma Delta was officially founded on May 30, 1904 at the home of Dr. Wellesley Perry Coddington, a professor at Syracuse University who was instrumental in the early development of Alpha Gamma Delta. Each of the Fraternity's 11 founders were progressive women who selflessly contributed to the foundation and growth of Alpha Gamma Delta.These eleven female students were Marguerite Shepard, Estelle Shepard Beswick, Georgia Alberta Dickover, Jennie Titus Smith Morris, Ethel Evelyn Brown Distin, Grace Mosher Harter, Edith MacConnel Hickok, Mary Louise Snider, Georgia Otis Chipman, Emily Helen Butterfield and Flora Knight Mayer.
Alpha Gamma Delta's official philanthropy is the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation. The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation was created in 1962 ensuring that the Fraternity's mission would live on into Alpha Gamma Delta's second century. The foundation supports members through scholarship grants, wellness programs, leadership training and workshops. It also assists members in emergency financial need known as "sister grants." The "sister grants" are where money from the foundation go out to members of the fraternity from all over the country who need emergency funding. The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation was initially devoted to the cause of Juvenile Diabetes but was rebranded in 2017, with their "Full Plates" campaign. The Foundation makes grants to organizations and individuals fighting hunger in the U.S. and Canada. Hunger prevention was chosen to be the new focus of the foundation to continue the initial efforts of the founders of Alpha Gamma Delta. 3

H.R. 2847, also known as the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act (or HIRE), was a Congressional bill passed into law in March 2010 that sought to provide payroll tax breaks and incentives for businesses to hire unemployed workers. A section of that bill, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (known as FATCA), sought to eliminate the non-compliance of U.S. taxpayers who hold foreign accounts by requiring those taxpayers (including those living outside the U.S.) to report certain foreign accounts and offshore assets to the government, and by requiring foreign financial institutions to report information about the ownership of overseas assets held by U.S. taxpayers to the government:
Updated Reports that NASA has confirmed the Earth will experience 15 straight days of darkness in November 2017 are just an updated version of an old hoax.
In addition, FATCA requires any foreign company not listed on a stock exchange or any foreign partnership which has 10% U.S. ownership to report to the IRS the names and tax I.D. number (TIN) of any U.S. owner.
“And on top of that, I spend many hours and many dollars each year filing U.S. taxes when I sometimes turn out to have zero liability for that year because I have paid a lot of tax somewhere else,” Dublin adds.
FATCA also requires U.S. citizens and green card holders who have foreign financial assets in excess of $50,000 (higher for those who are bona-fide residents abroad) to complete a new Form 8938 to be filed with the 1040 tax return, starting with fiscal year 2011.
Claim: The U.S. dollar will officially collapse after 1 July 2014 due to the implementation of H.R. 2847.
And according to Stansberry & Associates, this remarkable, radical collapse of the United States monetary system and “our normal way of life” is going into effect in a mere matter of months (just like a similar recent conspiracy scare about the federal government’s plan to eliminate 16 states from the U.S. in the very near future).
