An options trader can be right on price direction; but, if he buys high volatility or sells low volatility, he can still lose money.

MRCI volatility charts, updated daily and available to MRCI ONLINE subscribers, overlay current historical and implied volatility
levels onto a graph depicting "normal" levels and seasonal trends throughout the year.

MRCI's Implied Volatility Report, (as shown below) apprises options traders of whether and by how much volatility may be greater or lesser than average.
