    With risky bets back in play, stock selloff revives 'Volmageddon' memories

    Months after he lost millions when an esoteric corner of financial markets cratered in February, former Target Corp store manager Seth Golden is betting against volatility again. Golden, who says wagers on market calm earned him millions in the past six years, is among the investors who have kept trading complex financial products linked to the Cboe Volatility Index (.VIX) - Wall Street's "fear gauge" - in the months since some of those products blew up.
