WTFVIX?



Probably nothing at all…

Shortly following US cash fairness markets opened, VIX – which has been in freefall for the very last couple of days – flash-smashed from 20 to nearly 23… and practically instantaneously back again down, prompting more gains in shares…

Serving to to generate the S&P up to a vital resistance amount…

Notably, VIX is basically trading substantially below historic vol.  VIX has fallen for 8 of the past 10 investing sessions, dropping to 20 on Wednesday compared to 36 in mid-December. As Bloomberg notes, that is at odds with substantial recognized swings in U.S. shares — a possibly unsustainable divergence.

“Market internals indicate a VIX of 31 centered on trailing recognized volatility and five-day SPX returns,” UBS Group AG strategist Stuart Kaiser wrote in a observe about the gauge’s truthful worth. “60-day recognized volatility earlier mentioned 25 percent is the largest driver of that estimate.”

With big down days for the inventory sector probable, the sizable hole between implied and historic price tag swings may well be untenable, in accordance to Wells Fargo & Co. strategist Pravit Chintawongvanich.

“Historically, when VIX diverges this considerably from realized vol, it normally ‘catches up’ sometime in the following month,” he wrote in a observe Wednesday. “The VIX has dropped speedily as the marketplace rallies, inspite of high understood volatility. The VIX at 20 is 10 points underneath a single-month understood vol of 30.”
