VIX Graph January 29, 2010


The CBOE Volatility Index declined this week, after a significant pop last week that was the result of a more volatile market.

Despite an additional decline (three consecutive weeks) in the averages, it was not significant enough to 'frighten' investors into an option buying frenzy.

It's the attitude that 'I must own these options, no matter the cost' that results in VIX explosions.  Not this week.
