this AM, like yesterday evening I have a HOLD fot the 3 open LONG trades.
You think there might be a difference in some system or trade settings between us, guys?

Need Help with Stratasearch:( first time user)
I copied and pasted some of the long signals : entry and exit ( is there a more elegant way to do it, faster?)
When I choose "Run signal", it looks like it's doing it over the whole database.
How do I limit it to VIX index only? I do not even find ^VIX among the choices
Thanks

You're 100% right, sorry: I got again confused by this stupid Index, which has options which seem to be priced after the Futures, but priced like the stock options. Difficult to get the things more complicated than this.
In conclusion, Yes: the VIX Futures have no options
VIX index has options (stock options)
Huhhh... for the moment, I prefer not to touch these ( with ALL their anomalies) and test , as I said Futures spreads only

Options on futures have always the same multiplier as the underlying:
Oct 18 10 call at 5.90= 5 900 $, as far as I can tell

And Yes, with only 2-3 weeks left, if the market goes the other way, you have the equivalent of a future going against you, and , maybe not having the time to come back in such a short lapse of time.
Also the ratio risk reward is not favorable at all for a 10-23 bear call spread.
Read gmg733 post on how he would chose the strike prices to have a favorable risk/reward ratio.

Anybody has any idea about :

Vix futures daily chart ( let's say VIX Oct 2016 contract): The OPEN represents what time of the day??

If we take Sep 30 : the Open is ? ( I see on the contract description an almost 24/24 hour session , with a break from 15.15-15.30 every day? The Open of Sep 30 is Sep 29 15.30??( extended hours) or Sep 30 7.30 AM ( regular hours)

What about e mini SP (ES) daily chart :the open Sep 30 is Sep 29 18.00 or ??

Thanks for the help

I thought the VIX future has a multiplier of 1000?
Then, 23-10=13-5.9=7.1+0.4=7.5 x 1000= 7 500 $ risk
Am I wrong?

Also , you give yourself too little time, with the short option deeeeeep in the money?
