    this is wrong on many levels. If you enter the trade at at the wrong time, for example, (which will be the majority of the time statistically speaking) you still end up with a loosing trade, stock or ETF.

    " You can loose only
    the money invested in the ETF's.


    Loss is a loss, i dont see a difference. You either make money or you lose money. Numbers don't lie.


    Truth is most speculators go bust (especially true for small retail guys). Timing the trade is only one of the major components that go into a successful trade. If you have one of the trade components wrong - your entire trade is a bust.


    One sure way to make a small fortune in trading - start with a big fortune! (this is applicable to so many things..)
    I think his point is your max possible loss buying an inverse ETF is everything you put in, your possible max loss shorting a stock directly is theoretically unlimited
    If I knew the answers I wouldn't be here

    Just have a look at some Inverse ETF's like: UVXY (volatility), SPXS (short S&P 500)...
    ..they were over 10,000 $ during the previous financial crisis.

    4 ways to trade volatility
    ---------------------------

    This report gives some ideas on how to trade volatility:

    My note: the ideas above do not exhaust all possibilities.
    I use UVXY, pretty close to TVIX as to performance.

    Volatility was low as the stock indices set record after record.

    Not anymore ! Volatility has not yet increased dramatically
    but has come back to normal values.
