September Expired, Now What?

The Option Pit VIX Light Is Yellow: Volatility Is Going To Move.


Hey Traders,


VIX expiration was Wednesday morning.


All considered, it came in light at 19.79.


This despite a REALLY ugly day on Tuesday.


So now that September is off the books, what is next?


Wednesday was a strong day for markets,  I’ll have more on that tomorrow.


Today, the VIX futures settled at 19.79 … essentially the worst settlement for everyone involved in the product.


Almost all the open interest went out worthless.


The 15-strike, 16-strike, 17-strike, 18-strike, and 19-strike puts … all worthless.


The 20-strike calls … also worth nothing.


So what now?


Well, I have told you about the pattern we have been seeing in markets on expiration:



We are now at the point where the market is either going to rip higher, or we are truly going to break …


Wednesday’s price action says we are going to go higher.


Today, in my Volatility Edge program, I put out a trade buying VIX Oct puts …


I will also be putting out trades on ProShares Ultra VIX Short Term Futures ETF (Ticker: UVXY) in the coming days.


Your Only Option,


Mark Sebastian
