    yesterday u had posted, VXX cash out, today is last day. so they will cancel TVIX too


  2. Kam Says:


    Sounds like that question is for me.

    NO. TVIX is ok. Only VXX going offline today. Whoever is left holding by end of day, it will be cash settled in your account. Problem could be that it might trade way off the NAV end of day so one might be short changed in cash settlement.
    When they started VXX 10 yr ago they didn’t know how well it be received in market to made it to expire Jan 2019 which can’t be changed. New one VXXB will expire in 30 yrs now so no worries there.

    Hi Ron/BC,

    Wondering if you’d be kind enough to share your thought n TA on OIH and oil services sector in general please? What other oil services equities have you kept tabs on through the years, if any?


  4. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is a 6 month chart of the Daily $SPX. Price cleared the November lows of 2630 and is trying to hold above this important price point over the last 8 trading days. Price has been testing the downtrendline from the October highs which is also the 200ema and typically also the Fib 61.8% retracment point of the October through December selloff. The 3 day chart pattern before today was a bearish Island Reversal but price did not breakdown today. Price must hold above this 2630 resistance turned support AND then clear 2700 to suggest up,up and away once again. The Capitulation in late December was a major ‘throw in the towel’ event so the rally was to be expected and perhaps more upside to come. Bottom line price needs to clear 2700 and hold above 2630 to mean anything from here.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is the $S&P/$TSX 60 INDEX And of course it is once again doing something that one wouldn’t expect. The Long Term Modified MACD has given a BUY SIGNAL which simply means the 50ema has crossed above the 200ema. And price has cleared the downtrendline from September and price has also cleared its 200ema. AND the 20ema has also cleared its 50ema. Sooooooooo there isn’t anything that bearish about this chart other than it is very overbought. That is what the chart is saying in any case. Perhaps the U.S.$ will selloff and commodities will rally. That might explain things,if one needs a reason.

  6. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is a long term chart of OIH. I’ve overlaid the CD$ to show the correlation. You can see price even broke down below the 2008 and 2016 and 2017 lows. Those lows around $20 are major price resistance now. Markets have changed dramatically over the years and I wouldn’t put a dime on this or many other markets that have turned on a dime and defied logic with politics affecting so many markets now.
