Using Volatility Indexes
The volatility indexes are a weighted measure of the implied volatility of at-the-money put and call options. Very often volatility index is associated with investors' panic. Investors believe that a high value of volatility indexes translates into a greater degree of market uncertainty, while a low value of VIX is consistent with greater stability. For instance the VIX values greater than 30 are associated with a large amount of volatility as a result of investor fear. On the other hand values below 20 correspond to less stressful times in the markets.
