Volatility: How To Trade This #WickedChop - Volatility cartoon 09.02.2015

Volatility has been smashed (on the front end) alongside US Equity Volume (-26% yesterday vs. 1yr avg). There have only been 5 trading days in the last 30 with a VIX move of +/- 0.5%, but I like to wait on selling US Equity Beta around VIX 11-11.5. #Patience. #TradeTheChop

Speaking of Volatility...

#WickedChop continues w/ Oil Volatility (OVX) tracking higher (again) this morning off 34-35 support. WTI failed @Hedgeye TAIL risk resistance of $52.12 (again); our Energy Policy analyst Joe McMonigle had a very timely note up intraday yesterday saying fade the Iranian “freeze” noise. (Read McMonigle's "Oil/Iran: Sell The News!")
