A Crisis Alpha Strategy is meant to generate profits during market corrections, pullbacks, or even black swan type events and can be traded as a stand alone strategy.

In this episode, we'll discuss a quantitative trend following strategy called the Pure Alpha Strategy applied to UVXY which is a leveraged volatility product. Check out this article for more information on UVXY.

The 5 year performance of getting long volatility using the Pure Alpha Strategy on UVXY inherently gets you protection before any major market corrections.
