Options on my mind

The Market Ear Picture

Thinking about options...

We are experiencing a "gamification" of options trading by retail. Few of the new "punters" understand derivatives, but they understand that things move quickly.

So far so good, but things could get nasty from an aggregate risk point of view. With options trading exploding again, there will be a lot of unmanageable options risks to consider, irrespective if the market moves higher or lower.
