Description

The Volatility Index (VIX) is released by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). This index measures the implied expected volatility for the US stock market. This index is calculated using futures contracts on the S&P 500. The VIX is used as a barometer for how fearful and uncertain the markets are. Historically, the VIX tends to increase when the market decreases and vice versa. During the financial crisis in 2008-2009, the VIX reached as high as 80.86.
