A war with Iran would make markets crazy. Cboe would benefit.
If President Donald Trump unleashes the full might of the U.S. military against Iran, the Cboe Volatility Index would almost certainly surge, and the VIX’s owner, Cboe Global Markets, would profit. An outright war, a major attack, or any sharp escalation of what has been mainly an exchange of threats following the drone attack that killed a top Iranian general, would likely prompt investors all over the world to panic and rush to buy VIX calls to hedge or trade the conflict.
