    Default Big VIX Options Trade Braces for a 2008-Like Volatility Surge

    This is an old article from October, but according to sentimentrader,com, it's happening again right now...


    Big VIX Options Trade Braces for a 2008-Like Volatility Surge

    Someone is betting big that the U.S. stock market is on track for the kind of turbulence not seen since the global financial crisis.

    Trading in call options on the Cboe Volatility Index, known as the VIX, outweighed puts by more than 2-to-1 on Friday with the index at its lowest level since July as stocks rallied. The standout trade was one block of 50,000 April $65 calls that were bought for 10 cents. Those contracts would imply a surge in the VIX of almost 500% from its current level.

    Yep. Sure feels like we are all going to get a wake-up-call slap in the face any day now. It just keeps melting upward, and everybody knows that can’t last forever.
