Topic: A Quantitative Approach to Volatility

The VIX index, a popular implied volatility index, can be challenging to interpret and utilize. For instance, a VIX value that is relatively high one year could be relatively low the next.  Also, VIX values seem to have a lower bound but an upper bound seems illusive.  A quantitative approach can help shed light on the VIX index and help address these challenges.  The approach also offers multiple practical applications, including new strategy trading ideas.
