VOLATILITY REVIEW SEGMENT

  • SO MUCH FOR THE CURE: MARKET RALLIED LAST WEEK OFF HOPE FOR GILEAD’S CORONAVIRUS TREATMENT. THIS WEEK NOT SO MUCH. 
  • CRUDE OIL APOCALYPSE: WE ALL DISCOVERED THAT WTI CAN GO NEGATIVE
  • SPIKES: 37.5 – DOWN 1.5 FROM LAST SHOW
  • VIX CASH: 37.25 – DOWN 1.75 FROM LAST SHOW
  • VVIX: 117 – DOWN 10 FROM LAST SHOW
  • LOOKING AT EARNINGS VOLATILITY THIS WEEK. THE EARNINGS SEASON HAS RETURNED LITTLE SO FAR TO VOLATILITY BUYERS.

VOLATILITY VOICEMAIL

  • QUESTION FROM JACK: WHY IS VXX UP THIS WEEK
  • QUESTION FROM NEILP: IS IT WORTH IT TO SELL IRON CONDORS ONE WEEK BEFORE EARNINGS AND THEN CLOSE THEM THE DAY BEFORE, OR MAYBE RIGHT BEFORE, THE EARNINGS ANNOUNCEMENT?  MAYBE I’M JUST SPINNING MY WHEELS HERE.
  • QUESTION FROM JJC: WHY HAS NO OTHER FLAVOR OF VIX REALLY CAUGHT ON WITH THE TRADING WORLD? VIX IS A HUGE HIT BUT OTHER VARIANTS AND ITERATIONS NOT SO MUCH.

CRYSTAL BALL

  • WHERE WILL VIX/SPIKES BE NEXT WEEK?
