Post Elections Volatility Dump

Post event volatility crush is a known phenomenon across various underlyings. Post state election results this week Indian traders saw massive doses of implied volatility dump across various underlyings. 

The most widely traded underlyings, $Nifty and $BankNifty saw implied volatility crush across the option chain. 

This vol crush was also accompanied by a fairly decent two day rally in the indices. With no further news based events lined up for December, we’re expecting implied volatility to continue petering out and rolling out to a $INDIAVIX base of 15.
