Some academic studies have documented that market makers short index option and long equity option on net. It is easy to understand that Non market makers want to buy index option because of their crash-phobia. But why do Non market makers short equity options on net? How should I understand this?

    $\begingroup$ For a paper, study, or anyone to suggest that market makers and non-market makers act in such ways categorically and continuously, without fail, is complete nonsense. What you should understand about this is that you shouldn't believe everything that you read. $\endgroup$ – amdopt Oct 25 '19 at 20:51
