    Wake up call for all energy trading noobs, ENERGY IS ABOUT TO CRASH!

    gnus_hound, do you agree with noosseab2007, who said "So as the price of commodities go down, so does the implied volatilties, and the volume of options traded. As the price of commodities go up, so does the implied volatilites, and the volume of options traded."

    Question: As the price of oil went from $75 to $55. OPBL went from $.75 to $4.00, and the monthly volume of options traded increased over that time, rather than decreasd. How does one account for increasing transaction volume on 25% decrease in price of oil?
