Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 9/28/2014

Gold did not break to new multi-year lows last week, but if you read all the news you would think it was just a matter of time. I continue to watch the weekly chart of GLD that appears below and as of this past week the move lower seems to be slowing.   GVZ moved […]

Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 9/7/2014

Oil futures finished the week closer to 90.00 than 100.00.   This continues to perplex me as the demand for energy seems to continue to increase while the supply side of the equation has the potential to be impacted by a gamut of potential issues. OVX moved up on the week, mostly in the early part […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 8/24/2014

The SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD – 123.19) dropped about 2% last week, but stayed in the mid-120’s range that we have become accustomed to, although at the lower end of the range. GVZ moved up a tad, but with a 13 handle the direction does not mean as much as the level. The level […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 8/17/2014

The price action for the oil and gold markets, along with their respective volatility indexes is inerrable when the state of the world is taken into consideration. Even a looming shooting war between Russia and Ukraine doesn’t do much for the price of oil, gold, or implied volatility of either markets. Friday things started to […]

Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 8/10/2014

Oil futures remained below $100 and despite frightening things going on in the world there seems to be very little geopolitical risk premium showing up in the price of oil or options that are based on the oil market. OVX basically worked lower over the course of the week. This past week was a busy […]

Oil and Gold Volatility Last Week – 8/3/2014

When I put these numbers together for the weekend there is always something that stands out and makes me double check my figures. This week it was GVZ. For goodness sake, they are panicking, I can feel it, they are panicking out there. I was in the classroom most of Thursday and Friday, but our […]

VXST Futures and VIX Index Both Rose More Than 26% Today – By Matt Moran

July 31, 2014 — In a July 26 piece that now looks as if it could be rather prescient, in last weekend’s Barron’s Striking Price Column, Steve Sears wrote – “BlackRock, the world’s largest asset-management firm, is telling clients that equity-options volatility is now the last cheap asset class in the financial market. With the […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 7/27/2014

Checking with top people at the Rhoads family reunion this weekend, the feeling is that Gold is moving up, that is if more buyers than sellers show up.   In reality the published pundits seem to have a bearish outlook for the yellow metal. As for me, I just hope it breaks out in one direction […]

Volatility Index Reactions to Thursday’s Market Action

The cool weather has been making it feel like summer is ending and the markets acted like it as well. History tells us that September and October are treacherous months for the stock market and like the cool weather we got a swoon in the S&P 500 today. The result was fairly decent moves in […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 7/6/2014

The United States Oil (USO – 38.25) ETF was lower last week as the geopolitical risk in the price of oil seems to be subsiding. We saw OVX rally a few weeks ago when the price of oil moved higher based on increased tension in the Middle East. Now the price of oil starts to […]
