Sadly, it appears no one had a funny VIX-related sign at a sporting event this week, but never fear, there’s plenty of content in this edition of “The Spread” – the Florida options trading firm blow-up, volatility products in Israel, (non-Keanu) Matrix news, and more! 

The following are links to the stories referenced in this week’s episode: 

Tampa Bay Business Journal -> Ohio law firm preps claims for Tampa investment firm clients who lost millions

Bloomberg -> Broker Seeks Millions From Wiped-Out OptionSellers Clients

Youtube -> James Cordier – Full apology video
