When trading options, we would like to see two sided markets as these provide us with the most opportunities. However, it seems that the market has only drifted up over the past couple of years.

Today, Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista attempt to put some context around this observation. The guys look at the number of 5 and 10% corrections in the market over the last 20 years. Next, they bucket these corrections from '95 to '11 and from '12 to present. The guys find out that there has been an extremely low number of corrections over the last 3 years (10 5% corrections and only 1 10% correction). This shows how one sided the market has been recently and how this one-sidedness has impacted potential trading opportunities.
