Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.
Now that volatility has exploded, should we start to position for a mean reversion?

Frank joins Ryan on today's show to discuss the continued volatility in the market and to take a look at how we might structure a short volatility position, now that volatility is at multi-year highs.

The guys take a look at getting long SVXY by buying shares in the ETN and selling a call against it to hedge some of the potential downside risks. They feel this is an interesting time to think about a short vol position via SVXY as it now has an asymmetric risk profile. The downside is limited relative to the upside potential over time.
