  1. We have our volatility.
  2. spinn


    I shorted the SPY a little after 10 am and am wondering when we will get a down move of a few points......annoyingly I was up $2 after an hour or so, but lost my connection to IB for an hour......not sure if I would of exited but...........
  3. i suspected this guy to be a psy operator wanting to prove that volatility is wanted and generated by the market agents...

    however he doesn't understand the fractal nature of liquidity and the need of volatility to reveal it...

    to bad for him.
  4. As of now, the VIX is down for the day :)

  5. definately voltilite put prices have gone up alot this past few weeks..
  6. it's all good, i believe there is some volatility in my pants today :eek:
  7. You probably already know this...but, the VIX does not measure volatility. It measures activity in some options...which implies volatility...but, not necessarily volatility. I have seen some significant trading in futures...but, the VIX barely moved. "Word on the street" is that the PPT manipulates the markets via the futures (ES, YM, etc.) and it looks to me that since March...they have been manipulated...not much movement in VIX...lots of activity in futures.

    Just my $0.0000000002.
