FINAL THOUGHTS


/VX futures remain in the high 30s illustrating that volatility is still relatively high. Gamma rose slightly yesterday and is continuing to indicate less volatility in /ES price action. DIX fell again, showing institutions decreasing their buying. We continue to recommend keeping smaller contract size and using tighter stops.
