From Sholom before he goes on vacation. He likes to live on edge when we have credit spread defaults over the last few days out of China which could lead to start of a new meltdown

Trading VIX Option Mechanics video

Trading VIX Option Mechanics

So after coming off my options and futures architecture phase, I had loads of questions for Sholom to answer them. He even even made a video for me which you can see here.

Check out this quick video here

I think this explains how he basically trades his VIX options. From what I learned, I am totally different and more fundamental. I also will lay out a solid foundation where to start to from the recent UC Davis course I have harped on about over the last few years. I would highly recommend anyone to learn from it who takes their trading seriously. Automated or not!

Lastly, I finished this phase where all my video content has been posted also among my note taking as well. It could be useful for some people including my Quant Elite numbers:

Unit 21 Black Scholes option pricing with volatility defined
Unit 22 Black Scholes continued with Delta Effect
Unit 23 Hedging options
Unit 24 Option Trading Example vs Future

This is part of my “Indie Algo Trading Business in Python” course series so get the details here.

Last phase is now starting this week!

It is now done. As mentioned yesterday, I am going start to focus on a new set of content for the REAL successful FX trader.

Thanks Bryan
