Traders and investors need to stay informed on the following.
Even institutional investors or hedge funds that can run some complicated strategies seem to lack a full understanding of how these products work. In fact it was professional money managers loading up on VIX futures and ETFs that drove the steep premiums and term structure described above. Traders don't think they realized just how much they were overpaying for that supposed "protection."
At any given time, most equity and ETF options offer a multitude of strike prices, which are typically in $5 increments  though options in some smaller stocks trade in $1 or $2.50 increments , and at minimum, four expiration dates throughout the year that occur on the third Friday of the month. Thus many different expiration periods such as quarterly, monthly, and even weekly options  have been added to popular issues in recent years.
