Straddles, SVXY, and (Gamma) Scalping with Logica’s Mike Green

With a Top Gun-like bio of working with billionaires and big hedge funds, Michael Green is one of the top prospects in the alternative investment game. BUT, all we hear him talking about these days is his passive thesis, to the point where he jokes – that may end up on his tombstone one day.  We’ve heard all that elsewhere, so wanted to get into more – like what he has going on at Logica, if he loves straddles as much as Wayne Himelsein, how he views the current volatility landscape, his killer SVXY trade, The Princess Bride, adding fragility into the market, the tail wagging the dog, Coit Tower, Twitter business partners, opportunity cost vs covering the bleed, Zoom due diligence, and Gamma scalping.
