Connecting The Dots: How SoftBank Made Billions Using The Biggest "Gamma Squeeze" In History 2020/09/06 17:35:05 Zero Hedge
Connecting The Dots: How SoftBank Made Billions Using The Biggest "Gamma Squeeze" In History Tyler Durden Sun, 09/06/2020 - 13:35 It was back in July when we first reported that Goldman had observed a "historic inversion" in the stcok market: for the first time ever, the average daily value of options traded has exceeded shares for the first time, with July single stock options volumes tracking 114% of shares volumes. This followed a May report in which we discussed "how retail investors took over the stock market", pointing out the "recent surge in options trading - which has far more impact on market flows due to embedded leverage" and cited Goldman data which showed that " individual investor active trading is playing an increased role in market volatility, particularly in select stocks. In the shares market, 2.3% of all volume is made up of trades for $2,000 or less. The increase in small trades has been even more notable in the options market, where 13% of all trades are for 1 contract ." We also pointed out that "a significant portion of this increase has been driven by higher volumes in short dated contracts , as investors are literally using massive leverage to wager on near-term momentum moves such as those often highlighted OTM calls traded in Tesla stock." The last clue that an entire generation of investors were flooding into options - read calls - was the surge in individual investor option activity in both the top 50 and the top 500 US names, which has continued a steady climb since the start of the year (with a larger recent increase in the proportion of volume among the top 50.) To be sure, this option frenzy was a goldmine for retail brokerages such as Robinhood, Schwab and Etrade, which reported options trading activity surging 129% YTD (up 35% from June levels), which helped explain why various HFT outfits are paying so much to frontrun Robinhood option trades.
