Does anyone use this-primarily at extremes-to fade,etc...in their futures trading? I am already using the VIX but an article stimulated me to think about the actual option IV expansion,shrinkage,etc..as a possible very short term timing tool for the e-minis. Does this make sense? Maybe use the options on the S+P futures as the vehicle to watch.(IV). Or other suggestions. Or,maybe I'm just pissin in the wind...A good,safe weekend to all. Thx. I have found the Vix to be quite helpful. Much more so than the Trin.
