This a quick view of implied volatility skews across many months or products.
Most of the time the plots of volatility by strike are smooth, sometimes settles are wonky. As a result, the curves can have a whipsaw effect. We make no effort to eliminate this. If you want smooth curves, navigate over to the curves section of the site.
