  • QUESTION FROM NELY: Why do you guys hate $TVIX so much?
  • QUESTION FROM TRADECAP: Seems like bullish risk reversals are the savvy play right now in volatility. Downside is limited – particularly if you sell put spreads – and the upside is unlimited. Why don’t you talk about these more on your show?
  • QUESTION FROM ORLND3: I trade my volatility almost exclusively through spy verticals and iron flies. Am I missing something by not having that vix or spikes exposure?
  • COMMENT FROM j3dingle: Dear Mark, Have you ever had the managers of the ABR Mutual Fund ABRSX on Vol Views? If not, maybe they would be a good guest? Thanks, Joseph
