Something Shiny That Could Be the Real Thing

The Option Pit VIX Light Is Red, and Volatility Is Likely to Drop.

Hey Traders,


We have a host of amazing traders here at Option Pit …


Among that group is veteran bond trader Bill Griffo and his Power Income letter.


Griff has been saying for months that there is a boatload of inflation heading our way.


And let’s think about the headlines we’re seeing all around today …


Driver shortages, staffing shortages at restaurants, and rising prices in food, lumber, housing, gas and metals …


You name it … and the price is rising!


This has me interested in SPDR Gold Trust (Ticker: GLD).


Gold has traditionally been a major store of wealth when inflation hits the U.S.


While it has yet to react so far, it appears that a breakout is starting form …



Now what really surprised me is where the CBOE Gold Volatility Index (Ticker: GVZ) is trading.

GVZ is the VIX index methodology on GLD options.

Take a look:

While GVZ is getting a bit of a pop today, the index is still
really inexpensive.

This makes me want to buy calls — because the option prices are cheap.

June 170 calls, which are at the money, are glittering at just $3.20. And GLD is up about 2.50 as of this writing.

The Option Pit VIX Light Is Red,
and Volatility Is Likely to Drop.

Your Only Option,

Mark Sebastian
