ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how to hedge stock market volatility. It informs that volatility index (VIX) is a forward looking tool that measures the expected future volatility of the stock index for 30 days. As stated, reducing stock market volatility might be high on a client's list of priorities but in the long run, preoccupation with short-term ups and downs could hurt their long-term performance.
