Because I still have a blog to entertain.

I imagine at some point I will start blending in B roll stuff. Thankfully a TON of stuff never makes to the blog because I get a stick up my butt.

Usually I get home and hate all the shots I take. Other times more interesting stuff steps on things. I mean .....there are a million different reasons. Maybe I'm funky that day. Seriously.

    Give the stick to VIX, it just shat itself into unconsciousness this morning.

    "March 16, 2020 09:00:40 -- Cboe Options GTH Trading in SPX and VIX Options Will Not Reopen"

    "Please be advised that due to the continued limit down state on E-mini S&P 500 futures, in the interest of fair and orderly markets Cboe Options Exchange will not be re-opening the GTH trading session in SPX or VIX options today, Monday March 16, 2020 in accordance with Cboe Rule 5.20."

    Also ...

    "As of 9:30:01:08 a.m. ET. please be advised that as a result of a decline in the S&P 500 of > 7%, a Level 1 Market-Wide Circuit Breaker has been triggered and Cboe has halted trading in all symbols for 15 minutes. The quoting period for an auction in Cboe-listed securities on BZX Exchange will begin 5 minutes prior to the end of the 15 minute circuit breaker window. All other securities will resume trading once the primary market has reopened the subject security for trading and LULD Bands have been received."

    You're going to need a lot more sticks. :-)

  2. I wouldn't be surprised if we hit the third circuit breaker today.

    I never thought I would live through another time where you couldn't GIVE a house away. But this might just be it.
