    VIX Options

    Have I got this right? the margin to open a vix option is a lot less than the margin to open a regular vix position. that also seems true for all options as well?
  3. No election, no brexit until next scheduled election. GBP negative as market does not like this impasse and until EU grants extensions they will never reach any deal. debate and motion from 15.30 today. Eyes on the prize with vote at 17.00 latest, or any time between these two times...
  4. also from another thread "Beyond meat IPO lock up period ends 29th Oct (tomorrow) should be of interest. 9,625,000 at offer price of 25 USD coming back online. " could be a volatile session and next 24 hours...
  5. love these infographics thanks. so much easier to see whats going on with 90 companies and pick out your interests.
  6. With the VIX at three month low is now the time to hedge any potential position you have with long VIX position? I'm a buyer of VIX. Look at semi-historical moves where downside move of a point or so is off set by spike in upside potential.
  7. China to Ask U.S. to End Sanctions on Its Biggest Shipping Company Officials plan to raise the issue of penalties in Washington China COSCO Shipping Corp is nation’s biggest shipping company Assuming that's either COSCO Pacific Ltd or China COSCO Holding Corp then they're looking pretty good for a swing if it goes through I would say? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-10/china-to-ask-u-s-to-end-sanctions-on-its-top-shipper-at-talks
  8. "Saudi Aramco’s board is expected to give final approvals to proceed with its mammoth share sale next week, according to people familiar with the matter. The board is planning to meet with its advisers on the initial public offering around Oct. 17, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter isn’t public. The oil giant will gauge market conditions and assess feedback from a roadshow for potential cornerstone investors that ends this week before giving the final go ahead, the people said." https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-10/aramco-to-give-green-light-for-world-s-biggest-ipo-next-week
  9. What a fall from grace WeWork has had in the main stream media since it's IPO hype and ultimately failed attempt to list. "Last week rating agency Fitch downgraded WeWork’s credit rating to CCC+, a level at which “default is a real possibility”. It said “the risk that the company is unable to restructure itself successfully has increased materially”." as reported from the FT. https://www.ft.com/content/71b995e4-e5f7-11e9-9743-db5a370481bc however as one FT comment read "Interesting article that shows what the actual landlords are saying about WeWork as a tenant vs all the negative headlines. Most of the WeWorks I have been to in LatAm, Miami and New York have months long waiting lists for offices. They broke even on a cash flow basis sometime in 2017 before accelarating growth again post Softbank. Also, as the article points out, Blackstone and IWG are doubling efforts to compete with WeWork for a reason. Hard to argue that Blackstone is not aware of what a profitable RE business is. Irresponsible behavior from Neuman like buying a wavepool and G650 and terrible past corporate governance aside, WeWork's underlying business seems to have merit to it."
  10. interesting @Mercury - so you're saying the candle which is a wick, and the bounce, show the move upwards. Not a TA person but interesting to see opinion. also would google, but don't even know the term to learn about the TA strategy. Does a closed gap indicate direction too? only thing I got from commodity.com was " Windows as they are called in Japanese Candlestick Charting, or Gaps, as they are called in the west, are an important concept in technical analysis. Whenever, there is a gap (current open is not the same as prior closing price), that means that no price and no volume transacted hands between the gap. "
  11. So the ol 'Trump says something aggressive but doesn't mean it and that'll be redacted pretty soon when it all kicks off". Long DOW with a long ol stop on it.
  12. question is as mid channel are we going down or up looks to be down leading into china talks
  13. out of interest market isn't as shitty. does this look better?
  14. American stock in pre market, looking at a 30% + spread as 6.25 at 9.95 - likely correct but a shitty market so not likely to be a good traded price
  15. Goldman quoting the economic run is not over and the US 'is not close to recession'. RESESSION CONFIRMED. GOLDMAN GETTING OUT OF THEIR POSITIONS. lol. https://twitter.com/CNBC/status/1181191137303973889
  16. not resting orders on futures exchange so for charts not necessarily filled on candle spike. checked first fill in the market? closer to the 26400 or where you were filled? assume incorrect spike looking at the chart.
  17. In this market long for the time being. Oil prices up as U.S. – China trade talks loom, supply issues mount U.S.-China trade talks to focus minds later in week Brent, WTI benchmarks fell more than 5% last week Supply challenges vex Iraq, Libya and North Sea OPEC Sec Gen says too early to discuss more supply cuts REUTERS: Oil prices were up on Monday, buoyed by hopes of progress in U.S.-China trade talks and supported by challenges to supply facing major exporters. Brent crude rose 56 cents or 0.96% to $58.93 a barrel by 1100 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was at $53.44, up 63 cents or 1.19%.
  18. having a read over the thread I have to speculate... there must be a pretty solid correlation coefficiency between a few on this thread and conspiracy theorists.
  19. forgive me so whats the trade? whats the question?
  20. surprised this thread has been so quiet (and other oil threads!) Latest news Saudi Arabia to restore full output by next week-source Business survey suggests euro zone growth has stalled UK believes Iran was behind Saudi oil attacks down we go. looks to be mid channel but heading south (assuming we're omitting those black swan moves of last week).
  21. PRT is a solid charting package - well worth the money. If you're trying to game the free offer don't get pissed when you get burnt. Lol. I mean don't get me wrong - it's **** phrasing - but what they're saying is 'bring in the spread to cover the costs of us offering this to you for free and it will be for you'. Assume you need to pay the cost of spread to cover the 30 quid. i.e. £30 / 4 = £7.50 a point trade on something with a 1 point spread. Open and close 4 x £7.50 trade. OR whatever to cover that like 30 x £1 a point (on a 1 point spread). thanks my thinking anyway. Or just go here https://www.prorealtime.com/en/prices and pay through the nose for all those data feeds. Tick all those data feeds you get with IG and see those prices rack up into the hundreds of euros a month...
  22. Assume you're referring to shorting FTSE after Divs are posted?
  23. interesting history and fall from grace. Shows how innovation can get smashed so easily by poor strategic decisions. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thomas-cook-grp-investment-history-fa-idUSKBN1W807K
