Expiry Week, CPI, PPI, and volatility.


Today’s Orbit is a deep dive into the pop in IV, some of these nasty intra-day swings we’ve been seeing and what to be careful of as a short duration premium seller. Especially with #CPI #PPI and option expiry on the docket. Also, we look at how despite the $VIX pop, vol is actually quite low in a lot of these post earnings symbols. Therefore, if you were looking to position directionally, or hedge, you haven’t really missed out on low IV in most names.

We also look at expiration, which we’ll cover a little more as the week progresses. But, tldr version, volatile reactions to the economic numbers this week have a chance of really turning gamma negative into expiry further exacerbating these moves into Friday. ( a muted response would turn recent option buyers quickly into sellers into Friday doing the opposite to the gamma backdrop). We’ll see what happens and talk about it!
