  • Comment from IfThen - Bitcoin cut in half after Mt. Gox - talk about volatility!
  • Question from C-Bug - Are there any products on the horizon that you think can dethrone VIX from the volatility throne? Vol Dex?
  • Question from Tom Wills, Eugene, OR - I remember you discussing a VIX call strategy that could out-perform direct SPX put spreads on an older episode, but I'm not sure which of your 100 episodes it was. Please help!
