Betting On “The End Of The World” Just Returned 2400% In One Day (ZeroHedge, Aug 26, 2015):

This is what we said on Friday afternoon when we reported that someone was aggressively bidding VIX 50 Sept calls: “what would be far scarier is if whoever is suddenly offering a nickel for the VIX Sept 50 calls actually knows something.  Because if he “does”, that would suggest a market move ‘Straight out of Lehman.’” Fast forward to Monday, when we had a market move that was, drumroll, straight out of Lehman indeed, and shockingly, the VIX 50 calls, which were bought when the VIX was trading at half that value, were briefly in the money!
