Glamsplainin'...The VIX

GLAMSPLAINING FOR August 16, 2018

How do you spell fear? VIX. The VIX or Volatility Index is commonly known as the fear index. It measures the market’s expectation of future volatility. Yes, fear is a trackable metric.

When stock prices fall, volatility and the index move up because things are scary. When stock prices go up, the index goes down because the volatility goes down and fear takes a chill pill.

So, how do you read the VIX?

When the VIX is above 30, investors are scared and uncertain...much like a bad Tinder date. When the VIX is below 20, investors are Netflix and chillin’...preferably with a glass of Rosé.

Have a great weekend Savvies!
