Pete’s Blog

As Mick would say, please allow me to introduce myself! I’m Peter Lusk with the Options Institute, the educational arm of the CBOE. I’m excited to share my thoughts on current events that are affecting the markets as well as the things you should be paying attention to when placing your option trades. So I’m really glad you checked in and I look forward to all of you sharing your thoughts on the various topics too! As for the December 85,000 unexpected job cuts? The market seems to be taking it in stride with the VIX down a .50 at 18.56 and the SPX down 1.8 at 1139.
