Since the temporary changes due to Thanksgiving trading for VIX futures didn’t resume the regular trading hours, having decreased by 3 hours. Was it by mistake, since no announcement has been made?
On another topic, can it be expected that spreads resume usual values soon? For VIX the usual was $0.25 or $0.40. For some weeks now spreads have been constantly jumping between $0.45 and $0.75, while other brokers have 0.20 spreads. Today it even reached more than 1:
I also just noticed that the margin doubled on the recently added contracts, which would have an impact on rollovers next year. There was also no announcement for this. Was it intended?
You’ve since reinstated regular trading hours, but could I have some feedback at least on the increased margin?
According to your previous announcement the margin should have increased only for some stocks, not for indices. Should I expected the next contract margin to revert to the usual before the rollover in January, when current positions would be impacted?
