Continuing in a low volatility environment . Tom and Tony decide to put on todays Market Measure. The Market Measure talked about big 10% moves within a 2 week time frame and the difference between buying the ATM call as compared with short contrarian trades. Tom and Tony scanned the dough notables and came up with VXX which has had a 10% down move and BRCM which has had a 10% up move. Tom sold a naked put in July in VXX and sold a naked call in July in BRCM. Tom played it as a different kind of pairs trade.
