Volatility Voicemail: Listener questions and comments

  • Question from Tasty Meatballs - What is your take on the new TYVIX index disseminated by the CBOE?
  • Question from Jarvis - This is for the volatility views radio program. There are a lot of players entering the volatility ETF world. Some offer ratio products, inverse products or the new wave of spot products. I would like to know if there is a certain type of ETF or a certain area of the market that you think is ripe for a new volatility product.
  • Question from Azon - How does VSTOXX perform relative to VIX? Just as call heavy? Similar pops to the upside?
