Do you use ours against your assets in your long term portfolio? I have heard so many say both ways. Yes the cost is great due to the negative correlation and offsetting the losses in a big drawback others say if you are DCA why bother you buy low and why not self insure

I haven’t but been trying to figure this out, too For me it’s less about protecting the value of my portfolio and more about having cash available to buy during a correction. Still working through if it’s cheaper to have the cash on hand, buy puts on the market, or do something around the VIX.

That’s interesting concept to. I’ve thought about putting 10% of my contributions into dry powder to be able to take advantage of corrections as well but my issue is it’s subjectivity. When will the market correction be? How many big return days will I miss out on? Some of the fixed index annuities can offer pretty attractive floors and ceilings which is what got me thinking of it

What about selling out of the money calls? Serves as a hedge and brings in some income. But needs management to roll up and out if it gets out of hand. I do this against AMZN as it’s a big overweight in my portfolio.

Could make sense. I’d probably do a spread to define the risk from the hedge.
