Weekly Forecast for VIX Index (This Week)

Weekly forecasts range from one day to seven days. They are well-suited for intra-day traders who are actively - and repeatedly - buying and selling stocks, ETFs and derivative instruments. Due to the active and frequent trading activities they need to monitor the price movements at regular intervals and play in a narrow zone of price movements. Such active traders may look for very small price changes (like half a percent up or 1 percent down), and trade many number of times to make it big. For example, if one generates only a miniscule half-a-percent profit per day for each of the 250 trading days in a calendar year, then total annual profit comes to around (0.5% * 250 days = 125% annual returns), which is generating returns more than double of the trading capital.
However, such active traders need good experience in the markets and they need good discipline to book losses if the trade is not going their way. Apart from stocks and ETFs, such traders may trade in futures, options and other derivatives and any of the combinations.
