The VIX- Volatility Index

As a financial advisor; and highly repugnant to Federal Reserve funded schemes; there ARE legitimate arbitrage opportunities; however You're not "influencing" anything by buying and selling the VIX; you're simply betting that the market itself will be more volatile. This is clearly a manipulation to those who have level 2 or 3 NASDAQ access (They can see ALL quotes and take advantage of an erroneous quote. It's only possible with inside knowledge; and thus is only available to those who have special FINRA & NASDAQ clearance.
