Volatility Views 112: How Low Will It Go?

Volatility Voicemail: What do you want to know?


  • Question from CNans - Gamma vs. Vega scalping - You have discussed gamma scalping on early episodes, as a way to pay for long volatility positions. Is it not also possible to scalp vega by legging into spreads intraday? Or is scalping a particular activity linked to gamma trading? Would it be possible to do a show entirely devoted to listener questions? That is my favorite part of the program because I always learn so much from your answers.
  • Comment from Sly @sportsmentalist: Hey Mark, really enjoyed the Vol views episode with Sinclair. You should do more quant oriented episodes
