The VIX sits about 27.50 and its futures curve is upward sloping into election week. Options expiring that week will have higher implied volatility, even in individual stocks. Speaking of individual stocks, we're now entering the heart of earnings season so keeping an eye on the earnings calendar is crucial. And it's not just earnings, Biogen, which reports this week has a much bigger event the first week of November and is producing one of the more wild expected move charts you'll ever see (see below in Earnings of Note).

Here's how this week looks through the lens of the options market. Moves are from Monday's open to Friday's close.
