Jason Buck and Tyler Pearson have been talking to a handful of Volatility traders on RV.
Jason recently interviewed Ben Eifert who has amassed quite a following on twitter and also runs a fund called QVR.
Their conversation is quite a sandwich (24 pages or 1h16 min of podcast) but fun quite insightful. Since the topic of Vol is quite complicated and filled with jargon so I used Otter.ai to make a transcript of the interview. The transcript is like 95 ish % correct, so the spelling can be off or a word might be off but you should be able to read it because of context. I fixed the worst parts myself and added some highlights and notes for myself.
one thing is clear most of what Ben is doing should be Labelled as "Do not try this in your PA".
Still, it's interesting to hear what these VIX people do in their 40h+ work weeks 😂
