Quant Yeti

Long periods of suppressed volatility are followed by sudden spikes in the VIX. This bipolar price action is the result of (gamma) hedging activity by market makers (dealers). We use the gamma positioning of these dealers to trade options in the S&P 500 (SPY) and volatility products like UVXY. We also trade options in gold (GLD), silver (SLV), gold miners (GDX) and individual names like Tesla (TSLA).

Crossroads (April 19, 2020)

This video addresses the most important questions the market is currently facing: 1) shutdown vs economy, 2) socialism vs capitalsm, 3) inflation vs deflation, 4) V-shape vs U-shape, 5) high vola vs low vola. If you want to skip all the macro stuff, 15m into the video I discuss two different ways to trade it.


Sell The Bounce (April 14, 2020)

There are multiple reasons why I believe the market has bottomed. For details, please watch the video.


The Bailout (March 20, 2020)

Salami Crash Warning (Feb 23, 2020)

The odds that the S&P 500 will see an aggressive move lower is very high. More details in the video.


Warning Sign (Feb 21, 2020)

This is a daily chart of the VIX. It shows how volatily spikes when gamma positioning goes from positive to negative as it did today (Feb 21, 2020). When market makers (MM) have negative gamma exposure, they are forced to sell into weakness and buy into strength, causing outsized directional moves. When MM are long gamma, they sell into strength and buy dips which suppresses volatility.

Why have markets become so bipolar?

Many institutions require passive income to meet their obligations. The low interest rate environment forces these institutions to generate additional yield by selling massive quantities of at-the-money options. Since there is no natural buyer to absorb this selling activity, market makers take the other side of the trade which puts them long gamma. Market makers then need to hedge that risk, so they buy dips and sell rallies. This is now the "natural state" of the market and it causes the S&P 500 to grind higher. The situation gets turned upside down when... (additional info in the video).
