Rohan Clarke on the VIX and Put to Call Ratios

With the favorable response I received on two recent posts, Edward Hugh and a Fistful of Euros and Market Psych Offers Language-Based Fear Index, I thought it might be a good time to highlight the work of another blogger who I believe deserves a wider audience and whose content nicely complements what readers can find here.

The blogger is Rohan Clarke and his blog is known as Data Diary and also carries the tag line, “An investor’s diary of economic data, corporate earnings and market sentiment.” While Clarke is based in Australia, his posts betray a broad range of geographical and intellectual interests. His latest missive, from earlier today, Betting on Zero, tackles inexpensive portfolio hedges, the VIX and put to call ratios.

For another insightful blog from Down Under, readers might also wish to check out billy blog, where I can guarantee that Bill Mitchell’s take on the global economy and economic issues in Australia will give you something to think about, whether you agree with his perspective or not.
