I don't necessarily disagree (and I often dislike litotes, but given what comes next a soft touch is warranted)... you are exactly wrong regarding your understanding of what the Volatility Index is and how it's calculated. VIX has nothing to do with implied volatility, nothing to do with the BS formula, and is in fact a calculation of the standard variance of "a range of call and put strikes in two consecutive expirations around the target 30-day mark." https://www.macroption.com/vix-calculation/

judging by the spike in put/call ratio, puts. this market is crazy. ppl running full bore bullish positioning without protection, then panic buying it at a premium on the way down.

seems latched above 20... odd. ppl must have bought some seriously expensive options yesterday.

I'm wondering if yesterday's plunge (which began in the pajama trade) was fomented by a wily hedge fund. with the fed in radio black out, buy backs in black out, media pumping delta hysteria, etc... it was a perfect time to run stops... and boy did they. the put wall, according to spotgamma at 4300, got blown past.

virtually nobody has insinuated that below... most are calling out the falsity of this "market"... it's appalling that yields are still used as a bellwether indicator for equities given how controlled they are.

your definition of a dead cat must be interesting.

OMO doing god's (well at least the federal gubment's) good work today. thanks jpow, way to ensure the world looses faith in the us dollar so that sdrs can take over. 🤦‍♂️

delta fears over. or maybe the financial press is horrid at grasping economics and markets...? or maybe humans have gotten wise over the past 18 months to the psychological manipulation by governments over the pandemic?

PPT in 5...4...3... (unless the white house needs a correction and virus scare to drop inflation expectations to allow for more debt monetization).
S&P 500 Futures Jul 19, 2021 7:20AM ET
you are misusing the term case... just like most of the media.

there certainly seems to be a skew in equity fascists fighting for females in high power white collar jobs over the trades.
