Earning volatility this week: Alcoa, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Delta Airlines Crude Oil: OIV/OVX - up 9% to $50.50. WTI Crude - 3% into oil meeting. Gold: GVZ 17.83 - well off recent highs. Volatility Voice mail: Listener questions and comments Question from LosAngelino: What happened to the single name VIXes?
