- QUESTION FROM LL07:
I found the comments by Simon Ho on
the last episode somewhat alarming. The exchange needs to get
approval from regulators to offer tied trades to customers? Can’t a
broker simply quote a tied trade using combos? Why do they need
regulatory approval for tied trades after the options are already
approved? What am I missing?
- QUESTION FROM
ENCARTO: Am I better off
buying a $SPY put or a $VIX call to hedge my portfolio?
- COMMENT FROM TOM
BRENTON: I think the
upcoming spikes futures will be interesting. Looking forward to
trading them against the options.
WHERE WILL VIX/SPIKES BE NEXT WEEK?
