Let me share two inside baseball investing posts that I put up today on my paid sites.

Yes, that’s sites. Plural. I’ve been busy building a second site,, that parallels the focus of my book Juggling With Knives on volatility. If you want everything I write on every topic, my paid $199 site, is still the place to go. If you want everything that appears on this free site plus my posts on volatility and access to a new Volatility Portfolio (which also appears on, I’d note) that I’ve just started, subscribe to that site for $79 a year. (Or buy a copy of my book and read it until you find the secret code that will let you get on for free for a year.)

All of which brings me to today’s post on the two paid sites on the oil futures market and on volatility (maybe breaking out again) on the VIX fear index.Today’s post on oil explains why the record long position in oil futures argues that oil prices will go sideways (or down) in the next three to four month span. The second piece on the VIX looks at how we almost had a 20% breakout in the volatility index in the last two days before giving back a large part of the gain today before the close. I suggest that this might–but doesn’t have to–indicate an uptick in long-absent volatility.

You don’t have to shell out $79 blind either. As part of the design of the site, I’ve created a post of the month feature that gives non-subscribers free access to one post a month (and to past “Posts of the Month”.) The free Post of the Month this month is my post on adding the VanEck Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) to my new Volatility Portfolio.

Anyway that’s what I’m working on at my subscription sites, and

I think there’s some value to you in passing on the direction of my thinking about the market on those sites. Hope so anyway.

Of course, there’s an ulterior motive to sharing this with you: If you decide that you’d like more of my thoughts on the market in my or posts, I’m hoping that you’ll subscribe to my sites for either $79 or $199.
