The Buzz: SPX skew hits a 3y high
Options Research

The VXST (9-day VIX index) was up 62% last week
SPX skew highest since October 2011

VIX market



The VXST ended last week at 20.6, up 7.9 vol
points (+62%) week-over-week but it still remains
well off its early February high of 24. Although
VIX option 1m implied volatility also spiked, 1m
call skew remains near average levels relative to
the last year vs. S&P 500 skew at highs.

SPX 1m implied vol was up 3.4 pts last week,
the most among global indices. 1m implieds
are 15 vs. 1m realized vol at 9.3, 10d at 11.6.

Increased hedging demand drove S&P 500
skew to its highest level since October 2011.

The bid for shorter-dated options pushed
implied vol for options expiring this Friday
above 17, causing a checkmark pattern in the
term structure.
S&P 500 1m skew hits a multi-year high



We analyze the performance of VIX calls and
SPX puts across all listed strikes and
expirations from Wednesday March 12 market
close through Friday March 14.



A top 10 list shows payouts of $3.6 to $4-to-1
for investors who used near-the-money SPX
weekly puts expiring March 14.



March 17 and 18 strike calls were the two top
performers in VIX space; with payouts of
$3.7:1 and $3.8:1 respectively, just behind the
SPX weeklies. Those VIX options were 11%
and 18% otm versus the closing March futures
level last Wednesday.

SPX 1m skew is now at its highest level since October 2011
A checkmark pattern in the S&P 500 implied volatility term structure and high skew point to an increase in hedging demand




S&P 500 implied volatility: S&P 500 1m implied volatility was up 3.4 vol
points last week, the most among global indices, as hedging demand
began to filter into the options market. Options are now baking in a hefty
risk premium. One-month implieds now stand at 15 versus 1m realized
volatility at 9.3, 10d at 11.6 (Exhibit 2).
S&P 500 skew at a 3y high: Increased hedging demand drove S&P 500
skew to its highest level since October 2011 (Exhibit 3).





Exhibit 2: S&P 500 1m implied volatility was up 3.4 pts last week.

Checkmark pattern in the S&P 500 term structure: The bid for shorter-

14

dated options pushed implied volatility for options expiring this Friday
above 17, causing a checkmark pattern in the term structure (Exhibit 4).

12

VIX: The VXST, 9-day VIX index, jumped 7.9 vol points last week to land

10

at 20.6 versus spot VIX at 17.8 (Exhibits 5-8). Although the VXST was up
62% last week, it remains well off its early February high of 24. While VIX
option 1m implied volatility also spiked, 1m call skew remains near
average levels relative to the last year.

VIX calls versus SPX puts: two-day payouts of 3- and 4-to-1.
Last Thursday and Friday the S&P 500 was down a combined -1.4% and the VIX jumped to 17.8, up 3.4 vol points (+23% wow). We
analyze the performance of VIX calls and SPX puts across all listed strikes and expirations from Wednesday March 12 market close
through Friday March 14. We measure hedge performance by the payout ratio per dollar invested in the hedge, defined to be the
bid-value of the position on March 14, 2014 divided by the ask-value of the option at trade initiation on March 12, 2014. A top 10 list
shows payouts of $3.6-$4-to-1 for investors who used SPX weeklys expiring March 14. March 17 and 18 strike calls were the two top
performers in VIX space; those options were 11% and 18% otm versus the closing March futures level last Wednesday.
Exhibit 9: Top 10 payouts across all SPX puts and VIX calls from Wednesday March 12 market close to Friday March 14 market close.
