CBOE Warns VIX Futures Opening May Be Delayed

Tyler Durden's picture

UPDATE: *CBOE: CFE WILL OPEN THE VX FUTURE PRODUCT AT 8:10 AM CT

It would appear that the overnight melt-up exuberance of an optimistic investing public has been stymied as the exchanges break once again. Following record volume levels on VIX options this week, we are told this morning by CBOE:

  • *CBOE: CFE EXPERIENCING TECHNICAL ISSUES
  • *CBOE: CFE EXPECTING DELAYED OPENING FOR THE VX
  • *CBOE:CFE WILL BUST ERRANT VX, VXT TRADES FROM 7:00-7:12:01 CT

SSDD... Let's hope Jack Lew has something positive to say and doesn't "surprise" an unhedged market.

I miss the Smell of VIX in the morning.

Apperantly, the same people who wrote the software that drives the markets, wrote the healthcare exchange software.

This is what happens when there is only one lifeboat.

The VIX being down should not interfere with the daily 8:30 PMs smackdown.

Another shining example of the daily corruption in US asset markets, and the reprobates in charge of destroying anyone dumb enough to trade this garbage.

All long VIX trades where any bank is the counterparty will be busted.  Everyone else has to suffer the loses.

I was wondering when this stunt was going to be pulled.  Hope no one is assing around with options with VIX.  Bear or bull, the balls are going in the vice today.

Sorry if you hedged your portfolio yesterday and held long VIX into the night.  We, "the market of algos", will completely shut you out from being able to get your money out by ramping up the ESz3's to moon on the hope that a deal is getting done.  This will make portfolio managers think twice about the horrible thing called hedging, which never needs to be done again since the markets will only go straight up, in an exponential fashion starting today through infinity.

 

I really hope that when the Iceberg fucking tips it wipes out all the wealth of those who have chasing beta like a crack head.

Not like there weren't huge warning signs all over it.  At least this time around it's only algo's and the pension funds getting monkey hammered.

Long VIX's just got fucked.  I'm one of them (small position).  Will hold until reality sets in.

 

S&P's up 1.3% on fuck all - right at the start of earnings season - strap in folks.  This is going to be fun.

The solution is simple, don't fucking play. Stay in cash. Wait, wait, and wait. But, if you must, then don't hang around overnight unless you are real sure you aren't going to get screwed.

And when MMF's fail AGAIN, what then?  The doors are barred, the gas is entering.
