Trade 264: Vix Long

Vix is the measure of volatility - and the cfds are traded during the US markets - seems to be a good way to get some exposure on the bearish side, if the market decides to have a crazy one day fall, like we've experienced many times during the past 12 month bull run.

I just wanted to my feet wet trading the VIX, and a way of diversifying my total portfolio.

1/ basically we're looking for a reversal in the VIX to the upside the VIX is near historical lows.
2/ stops below 16.00
