Wallstreet Trader makes HUGE bet that Volatility Index will explode soon! - SHTF soon?
"Stocks have been rallying relentlessly to post-crisis highs.
Meanwhile, the volatility index (aka the VIX, aka the "fear index") is near historic lows.

But according to UBS's Art Cashin, some options trader has made an enormous $11.25 million bet that the VIX will explode higher very soon.

And a rally in the VIX is usually accompanied by a drop in the stock markets."

Someone else just posted a thread about another trader who made a massive bet against banks. Are they connected?

Somebody's got some inside information on an upcoming military strike and war.

At least somewhat connected. If your buying put options, you definitely want more volatility.

Would have expected huge call volume on oil and gold too if military related - especially Middle East...

Interesting that a lot of money as been leaving the big banks and now appears to be going into trades and options that believe the economy is going to shit...

It seems even the players think the game is almost up...

I believe a war is brewing in North Africa/Middle-East, volatility trades, money pouring into oil futures...smells like a war to me...
