Weird Bond Yield Stuff Happening | New 1 Day VIX Index?

By Derek Moore

Show Summary:

 Derek Moore and ZEGA CEO Jay Pestrichelli are back again to discuss the CBOE launching a new 1 Day VIX Index and what it means in relation to the viability of the traditional VIX Index. Plus, they note that 1 month treasury bill yields are far below the 3 month which is odd when looking historically at the relationship. Hint, it has something to do with money market funds and the Fed Overnight Reverse Repos. Then they discuss the decline in the money supply but when put into context, is it really a big deal? Finally, they dish out some recommendations.
