My interest in VIX and trading volatility has reached a point where it has been stated, “If VIX were a woman Russell would marry it.” That may be a bit extreme, but I got an early look at the CBOE RMC Europe 2012 agenda and was thrilled to see the number of VIX related presentations on the schedule.
The conference runs Wednesday September 5th to Friday September 7th. On Wednesday, the last presentation of the day is VIX and Volatility as an Asset Class being given by Marten Lindeborg of AP3 and Sheldon Natenberg from Chicago Trading Company. Thursday there are panel discussions on Tail Risk Protection and US Options and Volatility Market Structure both of which should provide excellent insights into how practitioners are utilizing volatility as an asset class. Finally, on Friday, four of the five presentations will touch on VIX or volatility trading in one form or another.
If you can’t make it to Ireland for RMC Europe keep an eye on www.cboe.com/blogs or www.cboermceurope.com as several contributors will be blogging on the presentations and other commentary throughout the conference.
