Trade Recommendations

We are still dealing with the fallout of COVID-19 which continues to have a major impact on the market. The biggest issue at the moment is the abnormally high VIX which is just now getting to a point to allow profit on options without major swings in the market. Conservative allocations remain the best way to mitigate risk at such a moment.
