STA Monthly Meeting – September 2017
Trevor Neil will present the VIX Pop Trading Method. This method uses spikes in the VIX to generate buys in the S&P. While this is a known trading method, but the practical problem is defining the VIX spike itself. Trevor uses two timeframe Bollinger Bands and a reversal trigger. It is a system and has a trailing exit. The full system testing results will be shown. The method was created using modern development and testing software. This method with these parameters was first shown at the 2015 IFTA conference. We can see the results at the time. We can now do a true walk forward test and study the performance since then and determine if it is genuinely a robust method. All rules and code will be made available to those interested.
Trevor Neil has been a trader for over 40 years and technical analyst for more than 30. He is a past board member of the STA and runs BETA Group, which gives market timing skill seminars to institutions internationally.

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
