AMC is an options market puppet

June 4, 2021

“Garrett DeSimone, head of quantitative research at OptionMetrics, an options data and analytics firm, said the AMC options market was eccentric. When we spoke on Thursday, the stock price volatility implied by AMC option prices was about 300%. Recently, it reached 800% at some point. He states that these numbers are “very crazy” and it is difficult to immediately estimate the impact of the underlying asset on the stock price.”
