Michael Purves, chief global strategist at Weeden & Co., revisits his short utilities trade from last month and highlights the current dichotomy between bonds and the stock market. He takes a deep dive into both the bullish and bearish arguments for Treasuries and the S&P 500, points out why shorting volatility make sense right now, and considers a specific put option on the VIX to make the trade, in this interview with Justine Underhill.

    "Extended" valuation is not a valid reason for why something "should" go down and/or sell off. Expensive can become more expensive. I do not agree with his analysis at all. However, I respect the hell out of this guy for taking ownership on a bad trade call.
