    Hello Michael,

    Is there any measurement of volatility in the commodity markets like VIX in the stock market?

    Thanx,

    Guillermo

      Dear Guillermo,

      Good question. There is no VIX on the commodities index, per se. But there is a volatility measurement for each individual commodity. To track these, I would advise subscribing to a service such as ivolatility.com or MRCI.com – both of which have quality information.

      I hope that helps.

      Regards,
      Michael Gross

    Do you sell Commodity Iron Condors?

      Hello Joe,

      Thank you for your question. Yes, we do sell iron condors, when the situation warrants. To sell a condor, you need 2 things:

      1. A market you feel will stay in a pre-defined range for a certain period of time
      2. A market with somewhat high volatility to make the spreads wide enough to make it worth your while.

      Thanks and hope that helps.

      Regards,
      Michael Gross

    Hi Michael:

    What do you do if you want to sell corn (or whatever) options and there is no one on the “other side” to create the option?

    Thanks,

    Orville

      Dear Orville,

      If there is no one on the “other side” then you are most likely looking at options without enough “liquidity.”

      You want to seek out option markets with both high volume (daily trading) and open interest (open contracts). You should limit yourself to options that have at least several hundred contracts being traded daily.

      Most options we suggest in this forum meet that criteria.

      Thanks and hope this helps.

      Michael Gross
