Comment on Trading India VIX - Simplified

I think the best bet would be to wait as close to the event as possible and then take a strangle, 3 to 4 weeks before the results. That has historically been the best time to take strangles around the election. This time around, with the increased popularity of option trading, everyone is trying to play the volatility game, and somehow my gut says that this time around there may not really be that much volatility around the election.

Cheers,
