Top Regulator Worries About Crypto Market Manipulation; CFTC ‘astounded’ as Congress prepares to cut budget John Lothian Newsletter,Newsletter

A reasonable person, Democrat or Republican, would vote for the modest increase the CFTC requested unless they suffer from a chronic case of market myopia.

How Can We Extend the Success of the VIX to the Whole Equity Options Market?; Investors Aren’t As In Love With Stocks As You Might Think; OPEC set to prolong oil output cuts by nine months Newsletter,Options

Lead Stories How Can We Extend the Success of the VIX to the Whole Equity Options Market? Timothy Klassen, Volar Technologies LLC – TabbForum The introduction of the new VIX in late 2003 led to the eventual explosion of trading volumes in VIX futures and options. Volumes in the rest of the listed equity options market have been stagnant for years. More generally, the options market is not transparent, since there is no standard for quoting options in volatility terms.
