WITH VIX <15, ROTATE INTO HIGH VOL EARNINGS OR LONG VOL PLAYS

TVC:VIX   VOLATILITY S&P 500
With VIX             finishing the week quite a bit below 15, I'm probably going to pass on the 45 DTE             index iron condor I ordinarily put on in RUT, SPX             , or NDX and look elsewhere for my premium selling plays; this usually means: either (a) look at earnings plays or an exchange traded fund in which volatility is high; (b) do a long volatility play (such as the VIX             "Super Bull" shown below); or (c) hand sit.

Unfortunately, no exchange traded fund sticks out that has an implied volatility of >50%, so it looks like NFLX             (see Post, below), is the only game in town at this point next week for premium selling.

I may also consider doing another "Super Bull" in VIX             options like the one shown below, albeit with slightly different strikes (e.g., 11.5/13.5/14/16) and in a later expiry.
