Unusual trading in Wells Fargo (WFC) options is noted, writes Steve Sears, with big buyers scooping up January $36 calls (current price: $34.91). Traders usually take advantage of inflated prices by selling options ahead of earnings, but the collapse in the VIX has made these puppies a better buy than sell.

    Hi Steve,

     

    The VIX seems to be unually low considering the economy and debt ceiling issues. I think a story on who may be manipulating the VIX would make an interesting story.
