Easiest way to get rich? Short VXX
when the market is just bouncing off the bottom like it was in March 2009.
VXX has gone from $1855/shr in 2009 to a measly $18/shr today.
But in real terms it never was $1855/shr, that price is what the share price would have been if you take into account all the reverse stock splits its had since then. But either way if you shorted and kept shorting since 2009, you would have made the easiest money that could be had on wall street outside of insider trading of course.
