Volatility Views 145: Debating Earnings Skew and Corporate Racism
Volatility Review: A look at the week in vol:
VIX Cash: High: 22.81, Low: 16.67
S&P: 30-day IV: 15, 30-day HVOL: 16, Skew Index: 127.54
VVIX: Thursday close: 98.56
VIX Options: Total 4.80m (2.86m Calls, 1.95m Puts)
Market now loving CBOE numbers, stock off 5.5% - earnings were up 7.6%, but missed expectations. Extended VIX Options trading hours start March 2.
VXST: Another week of anemic volume dispute significant underlying movement.
RVX: Still no appreciable volume.
OIL: Another crazy week for oil - rallies over 20%, then clipped, the rallied more again. Currently hovering above the $50 strike again.
