Does it makes sense for the VIX to be at 38?

Recommended Posts

We have heard about SoftBank in early September making big options bets on tech stocks and there is also the Robin Hood crowd apparently buying calls but despite , how could the VIX be this high?


Normally on a day like today, with markets not that far from record highs, you would expect a VIX in the high teens while here we are at Lehman Brothers like level???

I would guess, based on a more qualitative assessment, the upcoming election uncertainty and new lockdowns in Europe / Covid fears help explain some of that.


Keep in mind, VIX has been mid 20s / low 30s ever since Covid hit
