Vix Volatility Index Chart

About Vix Volatility Index

The VIX volatility index measures the market's expectations of future stock market volatility. Based on S&P 500 index options, this index tracks the potential volatility of the S&P 500 index. For investors, the index offers a helpful way to assess the risk of a stock investment. The VIX chart is calculated by taking the price of S&P 500 options and averaging them. Option prices tend to increase during times of uncertainty, and the current VIX value is an estimate of the volatility of the market for the next 30 days.

The index is widely considered to be an investor fear gauge, reflecting the collective opinion of investors. However, since market volatility cannot be known in advance, the VIX live chart is best used in conjunction with other financial tools such as historical data.
