Why the Nations Shares Suite of Volatility Indexes is Superior to VIX
Nations VolDex measures implied volatility the way practitioners consider it – by focusing on at-the-money options. Volatility indexes which use a wide swath of options conflate the issues of volatility and skew. Nations Indexes has released a new fact sheet detailing the problems inherent in a measure that uses a wide swath of strike prices.
Nations® is happy to partner with leading exchanges and asset managers to bring the suite of Nations® Strategy and Volatility products to the investing public.
