this didn't even happen. It's not hard to look up the open interest in VIX options people. Counting all strikes from 20-25 the April Puts have COLLECTIVELY roughly 36,000 open contracts.

In best case (crash/high volatility) he will get (75-11=64) Mio$, if he's wrong 11 Mio$ are gone, nice play!
But peanuts against all open derivates of some 100 trillion$.

From 1/31 buy@0.75 til today 2/11 sell@<=0.45 he has lost nearly the half!

Financial markets in the U.S. will crash by the end of April. This bet will only pay off if there is a financial crash. Junk bonds will be the losers.

how Soros does it

he makes a huge wild bet
then he spends other funds
to make it happen. then he
collects on the original bet
as a long shot. which is
actually no different than
being a criminal.

Anyone been keeping up with this thread?

The guy almost made his $$$ on Feb 25 when it hit $18.99. That spike made it the "11th-largest move in the history of the VIX."

The article can give some insight into his actions [link to www.optionmonster.com]

"This would happen if the hedge funds, which are largely playing catch-up already, are forced to buy VIX futures to cover their shorts. And the market markets too would be forced to buy VIX futures to cover their exposure to all the short VIX calls they carry. It could get ugly quickly."

Some Trader Has Made A Very Big Bet That Something Very Bad Will Happen Within The Next 60 Days

From Cashin's Comments:

A Very Big Bet In A Somewhat Unlikely Instrument – Jim Brown, the ever-alert consummate professional over at Option Investor pointed us to a rather unusual trade.

Here's what he wrote in last night's edition of his valuable newsletter:

In past years I have reported on trades that were so large it appeared someone had inside knowledge of a pending event.

Sometimes those were massive put positions on the S&P.

A new trade just appeared that suggests there will be a market event in the near future.

Last week somebody put on a call spread on the VIX using the April 20 and 25 puts. They bought 150,000 contracts for a net of $75 per contract.

That is an $11,250,000 bet that the VIX will move over 20 over the next 60 days.

You would have to be VERY confident in your outlook to risk $11 million on a directional position with the VIX at five year lows and the markets trying to break out to new highs.

Jim then goes on to list some of the scheduled events and deadlines visible over the next 60 days (mostly in Washington).

When you add in the broad variety of geo-political possibilities, it's a decent reason to stay extra alert.

Closed today at 12.67. It's abnormally lengthy low spews impending market correction. It's a good bet, dammit :-)
