  1. Skew today >145! Somebody is buying puts!

  2. ok–I BTFD. mostly like rare earth/uranium, battery storage stuff, short bonds, some japan financials, (who better in a low interest environment. rates up a little–they should do well.
    looks like the puts weighed in bigly. i will take the other side of the boat for a change.
    me thinks the second half of february is market friendly.
    so i am told. i will maintain my hedge tho.
    that vol of vol study you provided us helped me greatly. it really saved my tail.
    with .gov priming the pump again–the next time won’t be pleasant at all.
    em markets will survive the best, dm markets follow the path of the dodo bird.
    the only question left is when? chatter says 2019/20–hmmm. any thoughts?
    thanks again Mr. H.
    good luck all.

  3. just picked up some small copper miners–take a look at the copper options–its moving.
    good luck all.
