Predictably, it spooked the market and risk sentiment was hit across the board, with safe-haven US bonds and the Japanese yen being two of the few markets receiving a boost.  A record short position held in the Cboe VIX future, which tracks equity volatility as represented in the S&P 500 ......read more
