With the latest shocking revelation involving the FBI’s second probe into Hillary‘s transgressions, along with the news that serial sexter Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, might have had classified info stored on their seized electronic devices about Hillary’s goofs, etc., traders and investors are getting pretty fuckin’ fidjety as we head into the Halloween weekend (boo!) and the national election — just twelve days away. From our perch here in hedge fund land, things are starting to feel a wee bit freaky. While the VIX remains subdued at bull-market-narrative-confirming levels, there is extreme angst embedded in VIX options positions. There are currently almost 7 times more ‘call’ options (bets on a higher VIX) than ‘put’ options outstanding on the ‘Fear‘ index  the highest since August 2015, just days before China devalued and the US equity market crashed. So given the insane political news, an FOMC meeting, Russia’s risky adventurism, and Chinese FX and money markets in turmoil again, expect berserk shit to happen soon. Get hedged!
