BOLD is becoming less volatile overall. In comparison, the SP500 index is seeing a rise in volatility. During the last three months, there was a significant fall in BOLD's volatility from 13 Sep, 2018 to 27 Sep, 2018. While there was a significant surge in the SP500 index's volatility from 13 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that BOLD has significant positive skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors can expect BOLD to recover from drawdowns quickly. Which makes BOLD a good candidate for investing on short-term bullish trends or even counter-trends hoping for a pull-back.

BOLD has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, BOLD must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than BOLD.

Based on your interest in BOLD you may find it interesting to know that BURL and ZBRA are both small caps that have shown remarkable performance and deserve to be on every investors' watchlist.
