ON TODAY’S EPISODE, MARK, SEAN AND ADAM DISCUSS:

  • MOVERS AND SHAKERS FOR THE WEEK.
  • TOPICS FEATURED INCLUDE CRUDE, BRENT, EQUITIES, RATES AND LEAN HOGS.
  • WTI CRUDE OIL PRICES ARE WEAKENING AGAIN AS CONCERNS ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK COME BACK INTO THE SPOTLIGHT AND DOMINATE THE OVERALL MARKET SENTIMENT. SURPRISINGLY, PEOPLE ARE NOT WADING INTO HUGE DOWNSIDE PUT BETS IN WTI RIGHT NOW.
  • FUTURES OPTIONS FEEDBACK:
  • COMMENT FROM KAMAR: SEEMS LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO’VE BEEN FADING WTI CALLS FOR MONTHS WERE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. THIS PRODUCT CAN’T EVEN CATCH A BID WHEN THE MIDDLE EAST IS IN FLAMES. NOW THIS VIRUS IS SQUEEZING OUT THE LAST OF THE DEMAND. SOLD TO YOU!
  • QUESTION FROM JJL8: IS IT TIME FOR RECON YET?
  • QUESTION FROM ELIAN: MORE VOLUME ON THE TAPE THIS WEEK FOR THE BITCOIN OPTIONS?
  • QUESTION FROM ALLISON B.: HAVE YOU GUYS EVER DONE A STRADDLE RUN ON THE SHOW? MIGHT BE INTERESTING FOR CRUDE AND ES AND CORN. GREAT PROGRAM. I LISTEN EVERY WEEK.
  • QUESTION FROM JACK ATTACK: DO IWM AND RUT OPTIONS ALWAYS TRADE AROUND THE SAME SKEW AND VOLATILITY? OR ARE THERE DIFFERENT CROWDS FOR THESE PRODUCTS?
