I was discussing the VIX signal (from Wednesday), and teased out a better explanation for why the VIX is so low:
Its the Cub’s fault; That’s right, the NCLS series between the Cubs and the Marlins ran late, so the CBOE option traders are simply whipped. Not only are they physically tired from watching the series, talking about the games, and worrying whether the curse lives, they are emotionally exhausted from the outcome . . .
So now you know the REAL reason why the VIX is under 18 — blame it on the Curse.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
