13:05 EDTTreasury Option Action: quite a mixture of 2-way activity
Treasury Option Action: quite a mixture of 2-way activity emerged in the wake of all the cross-market volatility, which is understandable. Among standouts was a bullish purchase of 12k in November 133/138 call 1x2s as a small net volatility purchase at 9% of the ATM straddle and there was a bullish buyer of 15k in November 140.5 calls as well. On the bearish side were purchases of 9k in October 128 puts, 5k in October 127/126 put spreads and 5k in December 109.5 puts, along with a bearish sale of 11k in November 131 calls. September 10s are just 4.5-ticks firmer near 128-26, having reversed from highs of 129-285 toward lows of 128-24 as stocks have cut the majority of their opening losses.

10:35 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility went vertical
U.S. VIX equity volatility went vertical as expected, gapping to session highs of 53.3 from opening lows of 28.03, before pulling back to the 45.6 area. That was about a 90% move at its peak and certainly wrung some long-held complacency out of the volatility index after hitting the highest level in nearly 7-years. That took the VIX through the August 2011 high of 48.0 like butter, along with the 49.9 50% retrace area compared to the October 2008 peak near 89.5. Pretty good move for a single session, with room for some clawback now.
