It was a semi-slow week for options news, the big exception being the SEC’s surprise rejection of the OCC’s capital plan. In this episode, we wonder what could have happened in a different universe. 

The following are stories referenced in this week’s episode:
WSJ -> SEC Rejects Capital Plan by Options Clearinghouse
-Related from the WSJ in August 2017 -> Appeals Court Orders SEC to Reconsider Options-Industry Fee Plan
-Related from the WSJ in August 2018 -> A Messy Battle Brews in the Options Market
-Related from Tabb Forum in September 2018 -> OCC’s Capital Plan: The Value of a Bird in the Hand
-Related from Tabb Forum in October 2018 -> The OCC Capital Plan: The Other Side of the Coin
