#Options #QOTW: $TSLA open interest continues to be dominated by far #OTM "Mystery Puts." The lion's share of the OI is at the 100 strike and below. There are many reasons for this. But it leads to a simple question - do you think  $TSLA be below $100 by Jan expiration?

  • - Yes
  • - No

Question from Vivic 3 - Now that spikes is live what is the status of the other vol newcomers that have appeared on your show like Voldex and Volx?
