    The view on soybeans is a tough one to make and overly superficial imo. You have a view on the demand side, but what about the supply side? More importantly, playing direct commodity views through...

    Not sure about Ally, but most brokerage's sweep excess cash into a moneymarket (i.e. you sell something or you deposit cash and don't do anything w/ it, it automatically puts it in a money market)....

    Keep it in your brokerage money market sweep, or go out of your way to buy prime (you'll clip a few extra bps - I would buy prime if I didn't have work related holding requirements).

    Exactly. CTAs are essentially an entire space of vol targeting. If you're targeting a 10% vol you've had to scale equity exposure significantly given the realized levels, vol spikes you have to sell.

    I think that's way over blown tbh. Risk Parity is a scapegoat. People keep highlighting it, but they aren't short vol in the way we saw at all. Even the risk parity strats w/ the shortest lookback...

    Fair - just the idea of looking at % change of a percentage of vol is weird and the media loves to do that chit (i.e.: Dow largest drop EVER!!! - true in $ terms but not even top 100 in % terms). It...

    Everything about the bold is just weird and frankly kinda inaccurate. VIX doesn't measure realized vol, but the implied vol extracted through options prices. If it's measuring a measure of expected...
