ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures
Beginners in the stock market tend to think about investing as buying stocks and making money when those stocks go up. But it’s not the only way.
Which way is the VIX pointing us?
Volatility in the global markets continued to stick to its recent trend of rising on bad news and drifting back to normal levels in a few sessions for the week ended September 8, 2017.
The VIX Index (VXX) fell to the lowest level ever recorded this week. The VIX Index (UVXY) recorded a lifetime low of 8.84 in the first part of the week.
Last week, U.S. equity market volatility, as measured by the VIX Index, hit 10.34, the lowest level since early 2007 and roughly half the long-term average.
