r/options - Expected Moves - SPY, QQQ for Jackson Hole - Earnings: Nvidia, Snow, Zoom and more.

0DTE expected moves are about 0.6% in SPY, up from 0.4% each day a few weeks ago. The VIX got within sniffing distance of 19 last week, a level it hasn’t seen since the Spring. The options market is pretty much pricing an end to the super-low volatility in stocks we saw for most of the Summer, but it’s not yet signaling a ton of panic, as the selling the past two weeks has been mostly orderly.
