By datatrekresearch in YouTube Use the VIX to Invest/Trade Smarter

DataTrek co-founder Nick Colas shares his thoughts on how to use the CBOE Volatility Index, better known as the VIX, in our latest YouTube video. He’s been trading options and analyzing the VIX since the late 1990s. In fact, some of his best wins were in options while working for Steve Cohen at the old SAC Capital.

Nick breaks his discussion of the VIX into 3 parts:

  • 1: What the VIX measures and a few key numbers to know
  • 2: A brief review of how the VIX has traded and why
  • 3: How we make money today with this information
