Election Outcome Matrix

Interesting piece from BoA laying out the possibilities of Monday’s election with an outlook on economic scenarios.  One thing that isnt considered regarding a blue wave sweep is the possibility of a wave of year end selling to avoid the inevitable Capital Gains tax hike coming about 2 days after Biden is sworn in. Lots of people with massive embedded gains that I am sure don’t want a healthy chunk of those gains disappearing. Not a prediction, simply a possibility that is not presented in the graphic.


Option Buying in a Hi-Vol Environment

Buying directional Calls / Puts is not advisable with the VIX north of 35 especially considering that after the election there there is a high degree of likelihood that there will be a great degree of vol -crush.  That will reduce the value of your option regardless of where price stands.   If you want to place a directional bet, please use spreads. Buying a spread will insulate your position when / if volatility comes out of the system after the election.

Call Buyers get run over

After some extreme PUT buying on Monday, the extreme CALL buyers came roaring back yesterday. The dipsters are highly conditioned to buy every single dip no matter what.  Maybe this morning they will be re-thinking that move.  Taking shots here and there is fine. Just keep in mind that this is a defensive environment and with VIX over 35, options are very expensive.
