            Can't tell you what to do, but I've done quite well with XIV and UVXY.  They are all I trade now.

                caution on UVXY unless you are going short.  downward trend all year. Day trading may yield good returns.

                    I've gone long, short, and done options.

                    Yes, caution is needed, but it has been rewarding.
