Trading the Volatility Index (VIX)


10 May 2022 Written by Andria Pichidi  HF Markets Analyst Andria Pichidi

Volatility Index, or VIX, is a market index that represents the markets expectation of 30-day forward-looking volatility. The price is derived from the SP500 index options and provides a measure of expected investor sentiment and market risk. In general, volatility can be measured using two different methods. The first method is based on historical volatility, using statistical calculations on previous prices over a specific time period. This process involves computing various statistical numbers, like mean (average), variance, and finally, the standard deviation on the historical price data sets.

The second method, which the VIX uses, involves inferring its value as implied by options prices.1 Options are derivative instruments whose price depends upon the probability of a particular stock’s current price moving enough to reach a particular level (called the strike price or exercise price).
