Beyond The Stock Market VIX Volatility Index / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have traded options for a number of years and fully understand the "greeks" as should any active options trader. When you understand options you realize how valuable of a tool they are for investing, managing risk and understanding market sentiment. They are not as risky as many think. Before I share a rather important chart, I think it is important to go over a few option basics to fully appreciate what the data is telling you.

A Pivot Point on the VIX? / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Marty_Chenard

There is something important happening on the VIX that I want to point out today ...

Note, that we have a yellow, down slopping resistance line on the VIX chart that goes from June 2010 to April 2011. That resistance line was penetrated to the upside on February 22nd ... the very day that the market started pulling back.

What the VIX is Saying for the Stock Market... / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe VIX is regarded as the Fear Index by many, so you would expect it to be screaming "Fear" after yesterday's market drop, the Libyan and Saudi troubles, and the huge earthquake in Japan.

It isn't ... instead it is showing that the market is acting like it is relatively undaunted by all the above concerns.

Trap Like Pattern in VIX / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Mike_Paulenoff

We have to be impressed with the market's resiliency today after hitting new recovery highs, because weakness thereafter has been very much contained, at least so far. That said, however, I am "concerned" about the "trap-like" pattern that has developed in the hourly Volality Index (VIX). Let's notice that the VIX made multi-month lows this morning at 22.70, but has since climbed back above 23.20, which so far has "trapped" VIX bears (SPX bulls).

What's the VIX Saying For the Stock Market Trend? / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRemember the old story of the "Three blind men and the elephant"?

In the tale, each man touches a different part of the elephant and think it is something different. One thinks its a snake, another a tree, and the versions of this story carry on. But, what is the same is that all three disagree with each other and are in conflict.

The Stock Market Fix is in the VIX / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo measure the ongoing success or failure of massive QE "working groups" interventions, all one needs to keep an eye on is the VIX.  Readings below 20 suggest, "The FIX is in", whereas readings above 20 diminish the mission control effort to reflate monopoly-saving bubbles.

In effort to maintain control of supreme monopolies, policy makers and monetary authorities have successfully fostered an egregiously false paradigm of ever-rising paper asset values in setting policy and enacting legislation that in effect "FIXES the VIX" to extraordinarily low levels.  This fuels rampant speculation, and excessive risk taking without regard for useful gains in productivity and the real economy over the medium or long-term.

Stock Market Investors Keep a Close Eye on VIX Investor Fear / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Historically, the “fear index,” or the VIX, had minimal impact on the price of precious metals.  However, as investors forgo treasury bonds in search of even safer investments, the VIX is correlating very well with the price of precious metals.

Complacency Returns to the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Volatility

Stock Market VIX Volatility Still High / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe VIX (a measure of options volatility, an indicator of stock market volatility risk, and reputedly a “fear gauge”) has come down so far from being historically high, that commentators now speak of it as low.  The fact is that is it still high relative to the intermediate past.

Wild Stock Market Swings in Losing Session / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Harry_Boxer

The market certainly got some volatility today, down in the morning, up mid-day and then back down late in the day. But it ended with losses for the session. The day started out with a big gap down on negative futures. They backed and filled in the morning, bear-flagged, and then went lower, reaching the session lows by mid-morning. That was right at yesterday's mid-day lows. When those levels held the indices then staged a rally.

Stock and Currency Markets Risk Aversion Ahead of Obama Inauguration / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleProlonged risk aversion is expected to ensue until Tuesdays presidential inauguration brings in a temporary feel good rally. Having made their third failed attempt to rise more than 25% since the intensification of the crisis, equities, VIX and the yen are expected to further move in the direction of prolonged reduction in risk appetite (equities negative, yen positive, VIX positive). I warned in the Jan 2 nd piece Risk Appetite Pushes the Envelope that the trio of risk appetite will be constrained near 940 for the S&P500, $850 for gold (having failed to break its 8-week cycle gains) and 92.50 yen in USDJPY.

Why Falling VIX Could Mean NO Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe answer to a subscriber's puzzling question: "The VIX goes down, and the S&P moves up.  The VIX goes up, and the S&P goes down.  But, sometimes the VIX goes down and instead of going up, the S&P moves in a sideways trading range .  Can you tell me why?"  Thanks, DJ

Thanks for the question, it is an important one because if you don't understand why, then you will not trust the VIX (Volatility Index) as an indicator.   Investors need to trust their indicators, and when they can't trust them, they need to know why.
