Volatility Views 94: We Are
Volatility Views is back from hiatus and in
this episode, Mark is joined by Mark Sebastian and Pat Fay,
Director of Listed Derivatives, Russell Indexes
Volatility Review: RVX options and
futures are back. Why bring them back? What’s unique to the
RVX relative to the VIX? An overview/analysis of all the recent
trading activity in VIX options and futures as well as VIX-related
Volatility Voicemail: What Do You Want
- Comment from Mr. Inc.: @Options Great to see
that Volatility Views is returning to the schedule. My fav show.
Cannot wait to hear it again.
- Question from Joseph Hill, Spokane, WA: Great
episode with Russell Rhoads from the CBOE. I hope Vol Views will be
back on a more regular basis going forward. I also have a question
about vol trading. I like the idea of VIX options, but I am not
heavily invested in S&P 500 stocks. I think something like the
NASDAQ VIX for my tech portfolio and Russell VIX for my small cap.
My question is - Are these products identical to regular VIX
options except for a different underlying? Or do they have
different calculation formulas, settlement dates, etc.? Any plans
to launch a futures show?
- Question from SID S., Des Moines, IA: What is
a good way to trade corn volatility? Do I have to do straddles on
the big futures options or is there something else? Maybe a corn
VIX that offers a more direct approach?
Crystal Ball: Our expectation from the
upcoming week in VIX, RVX, ETPs and more.
