FUTURES OPTIONS FEEDBACK 

  • QUESTION FROM RETRIBRAND: What is the most interesting cme product from a skew perspective?
  • QUESTION FROM ELY: Checking out the OIR back catalog and came across the early episodes of TWiFO. My how the commodity landscape has changed. In those early episodes you were talking about soybeans as great candidates for collar trades. Do you foresee us getting back to that situation anytime soon? Any other products where collars might be favorable?
