At the start of the year, we highlighted some of top ways to prep for volatility.

In fact, we said, “Fear is running wild on the Street.  But don’t panic.  Use it to your advantage. At the moment, the major indices are taking a hit on earnings, inflation, and the likelihood of near-term interest rate hikes.  With volatility likely to stick around, we can try to profit from it by using VIX ETFs and ETNs.”

And so far so good…

All thanks to inflation, conflict around the world, and fears of a recession.
