Vol Voicemail: Listeners weigh in

  • Question from Nigel B - How are crude options and volatility looking with this rally toward 50? Lots of call love?
  • Question from Alamut01 -SPX sells off over 2% last week and VIX barely budges. What up?
  • Question from IVUP - Can you please give us a status update on the Voldex products particularly a release date?
  • Question from Agave - Is it true that volatility skew was born out of the 1987 crash and did not exist previously? I heard that recently and it seems difficult to believe.
