Volatility Voicemail: So many questions!

  • Question from Allan S - I hear a lot about gamma scalping on the network.  But what about volatility scalping. Isn't that really what you're doing?  Aren't most options traders really volatility traders? Thank you for clarifying. 
  • Question from Jim Thompson, New Mexico - What does the volatility panel think of flash boys - particularly as it pertains to Volatility.  Are these same players active in derivatives and, if so, are they causing our exacerbating volatility?  Great show Mark.  Jared has been an excellent addition to the team.
