Darrin Johnson is a volatility trader, trading for himself rather than working at a firm. His ideas, approach and techniques to trading are rigorously researched and thought through. He has spent a lot of time getting really good at focusing on what works, eliminating that which doesn't help him. Darrin does a great job of explaining his approach to volatility and how we all are vol traders, one way or another. Darrin has appeared in various podcasts and interviews, talking about his process of shorting volatility in the S&P 500 complex, including options on futures, index options, VIX futures, and VIX ETPs.
