The New CBOE Short-Term Volatility Index
Late in 2013, CBOE introduced its latest innovation in the volatility space -- the CBOE Short-Term Volatility IndexSM (VXSTSM). Designed to complement the VIX Index, which tracks 30-day volatility, the VXST Index is calibrated to measure 9-day volatility. VXST futures were launched in February and VXST options launched a few weeks ago. Join The Options Institute's Russell Rhoads, a leading authority in volatility trading, for a special webcast on the new "Short-Term VIX Index." In the webcast, Rhoads will cover the relationship between the VXST Index and the price behavior of VXST futures, as well as the different types of investors using VXST options and the trading strategies they are employing.
