New Subscription Services And Other Changes Coming To Trading Volatility

Today I have some important announcements to share with you all regarding the Trading Volatility website.

First though, I would like to thank all of you for supporting Trading Volatility. Your interest and enthusiasm for the site has been a huge source of motivation for me to continue to make improvements in order to make this one of the best volatility trading resources available on the Internet. I also want to send an extra special Thank You to those who have donated to the site. Your contributions have helped the site to grow during a critical phase.

I've really enjoyed helping people learn how to navigate the world of volatility products by sharing the knowledge and tools that I've built over the years. The number of visitors to the site has increased dramatically recently, and at times it’s been difficult to keep up with responding to all your great questions and comments.

I want to continue to be able to provide you with the information you need to successfully trade volatility products and to expand the site's capabilities, but in order to do that I need make a few changes.

Starting May 18th, some portions of this site will no longer be accessible for free. Instead, a new site, Trading Volatility+, will be made available to paying subscribers. For details on what exactly will change please see a description of the services below.

Access to Trading Volatility+ will be available for $80/month. However, during the next month I am making a six-month subscription available for $360 as a thank you for supporting the site in this early stage.

If you later decide that the service isn’t for you for whatever reason and would like to cancel your access to the site, just let me know and I’ll be happy to issue a prorated refund based on the time remaining on your subscription.

I've also had many requests for a service which communicates my VIX ETP entries and exits. The delivery mechanisms and details of the service, Trading Volatility Insider, are still being worked out. So for now this will be unofficially available at no additional cost to any Trading Volatility+ subscribers who are interested. After you sign up for Trading Volatility+, send an email to and let me know you’d like to be added to the list of people to receive updates.

For expanded descriptions of the services that will be available please visit the Trading Volatility+ page.
