London, United Kingdom–(Newsfile Corp. – April 29, 2022) – Samuel and Co Trading are releasing a further license batch of their VIX Trading Algorithm – a highly sought after software tool that trades the volatility Index. The algorithm has been developed to take advantage of the volatility within the Chicago Board Options Exchange’s CBOE Volatility Index, a popular measure of the stock market’s expectation of volatility based on the S&P 500 index options.
Founded by Samuel Leach, Samuel and Co Trading work with global institutions specifically hedge funds and prop funds who are ready to transform their manual trading strategies and harness technology to deliver results via automation. Helping both individuals and businesses to accelerate their trading results.
When COVID-19 turned the world upside down, traders had to adapt quickly to survive. Many fundamentals of the market were affected with a large surplus of added volatility. The VIX hit staggering levels above 60 which have not been seen since the 2008 financial crash.
Samuel and Co Trading believes there is no ‘new normal’ that one can expect to return to, or arrive at, a static ‘normal’. There is only new. The world will forever be hit with new volatile scenarios and therefore forever in need of a resilient and dynamic tool to combat and take advantage of this volatility. This is becoming increasingly more obvious especially with the Ukraine and Russia Crisis, and no longer possible for trading firms to ignore.
This rapid evolution of what constitutes ‘new’ will continue to require traders to transform themselves and their trading approach – to remain on top of their game with sustainable growth.
Why the VIX?
Trading the VIX, also known as the fear gauge, is directly capturing market fear, it is compiled based on how much traders are willing to pay for options on the S&P 500 Index. Options are contracts that give the holder the right, not the obligation, to buy securities at set prices by a set date when the underlying asset reaches set levels. The algorithm is predicting these swing points in the market, and it is doing so on a frequent basis. Most recently taking advantage of missed earnings from blue chip companies and fears of steep interest rate rises and recession.
Samuel and Co Trading believes that to successfully navigate the evolving landscape, traders need to be utilising innovative, fast execution strategies to maintain their edge. Often businesses and traders can fall into the trap of expecting innovation to just happen. Samuel and Co Trading has long emphasised that when this happens, a crucial opportunity is missed. That is the opportunity to add an edge to their trading performance and utilise an automated trading tool taking advantage of these elevated levels of volatility in the market.
Samuel and Co Trading strives to help traders embrace the missed opportunities in the markets and reap the rewards of automated transformation. This approach is soon becoming heavily sought after and with this Samuel and Co Trading are releasing a further 50 licenses of the VIX trading algorithm in June. Traders can join the highly anticipated waiting list here.
