Volatility Voicemail: What Do You Want to Know?

  • Comment from Mr. Inc.: @Options Great to see that Volatility Views is returning to the schedule. My fav show. Cannot wait to hear it again.
  • Question from Joseph Hill, Spokane, WA: Great episode with Russell Rhoads from the CBOE. I hope Vol Views will be back on a more regular basis going forward. I also have a question about vol trading. I like the idea of VIX options, but I am not heavily invested in S&P 500 stocks. I think something like the NASDAQ VIX for my tech portfolio and Russell VIX for my small cap. My question is - Are these products identical to regular VIX options except for a different underlying? Or do they have different calculation formulas, settlement dates, etc.? Any plans to launch a futures show?
  • Question from SID S., Des Moines, IA: What is a good way to trade corn volatility? Do I have to do straddles on the big futures options or is there something else? Maybe a corn VIX that offers a more direct approach?

Crystal Ball: Our expectation from the upcoming week in VIX, RVX, ETPs and more.
