BTFVIX

THe financial blog Zero Hedge popularized “BTFD” (Buy The Fucking Dip) in 2010-11, stating that the “dip” was an opportunity to buy something at a cheaper price. This jocular investment strategy was followed in 2013 with “BTFATH” (Buy The Fucking All Time High), where something rising to its all-time highest price provides the clear indication of positive momentum to go even higher.

“BTFVIX?” (Buy The Fucking VIX) was printed on Zero Hedge on May 27, 2016.

Wikipedia: VIX
VIX is a trademarked ticker symbol for the CBOE Volatility Index, a popular measure of the implied volatility of S&P 500 index options; the VIX is calculated by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). Often referred to as the fear index or the fear gauge, the VIX represents one measure of the market’s expectation of stock market volatility over the next 30-day period.

With Goldman suggesting VIX should be in the upper teens based on ‘fundamentals’ and event risks galore on the horizon (FOMC, Brexit, Spain elections, US elections, etc.) Geneva Swiss Bank suggests it is time to BTFVIX…
