I have been looking into a hedge recommended by Motley Fool Pro... Buying the VIX now that it's at a year low and within reasonable all time lows. Yet, instead of buying calls I thought buying the index would be a sure thing and just need to sit and wait for it to go up. But then I realized you cannot buy the VIX index, there is no volume on it. So, if I sell a PUT and at expiration the price of the VIX is below my strike price I will not get any stock right? Conversely, if I buy CALLS and the price is above my strike price at expiration I will not get any VIX index stock, right? The trade is purely speculative within a short time frame -since there are no leaps- or... well you could roll over your trade nearing expiration... hhmm!?
