Trading CFDs On VIX index

CBOE Volatility Index Futures (VIX). A popular indicator of the US stock market’s expectation of volatility. Also referred to as the ‘fear gauge’ CBOE.
The Cboe Volatility Index, or VIX Index, is an up-to-the-minute estimate of expected volatility calculated by looking at real-time options prices on the S&P 500® Index traded on the Cboe Exchange. (“Cboe Options”) (Symbol: SPX). Only SPX options with Friday expirations are used to calculate the VIX Index. The VIX Index is calculated between 2:15 a.m. CT and 8:15 a.m. CT and between 8:30 a.m. CT and 3:15 p.m. CT. Only SPX options with more than 23 days remaining to expiration on Friday included calculating the VIX Index. These SPX options are then weighted to yield a constant, 30-day measure of the S&P 500 Index’s presumed volatility.
