The VIX & The Tides

The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a market index that represents the market's expectation of 30-day forward-looking volatility. A high VIX high volatility and a low VIX = low volatility.

For some perspective, back in December when the market was very volatile, the VIX rose to 36.20. Since then the markets have been much calmer and the VIX has been around 13.

When the VIX is high expect volatility and trade accordingly. Likewise a low VIX might offer a little more stability so adjust your trade accordingly.
