VIX Options

VIX is the CBOE Volatility index. VIX is an up-to-the-minute market estimate of expected volatility.

The VIX index calculations are based on and use real-time S&P 500 Index (SPX) option bid/ask quotes. Two nearest expiration S&P 500 index options with at least 8 days until the expiration are used in the calculation of VIX. A wide range of strike prices is used. The VIX calculation formula averages the weighted prices of at-the-money and out-of-the money puts and calls to derive expected volatility.

Because the VIX formula isolates expected volatility from other factors that could affect option prices such as dividends, interest rates, changes in underlying price and time to expiration, the VIX options offer a way for investors to buy and sell option volatility without having to deal with factors that have an impact on the value of an SPX option position.

VIX options expiration differs from other options expiration. While the options expire on the third Friday, the VIX options expire exactly 30 days before the next options expiration. The VIX options expire always on the Wednesday that is thirty days prior to the third Friday of the following calendar month. This is because the VIX index was designed to be a consistent 30-day benchmark of expected market volatility and the VIX index is calculated as a weighted average of options expiring on two different dates.

VIX options will not always reflect current, real-time VIX values, at least not until they get close to expiration, and this is because the underlying value for VIX options is the expected or forward value of VIX at expiration, rather than the current. For instance, VIX options expiring in May will be based on June SPX options (expiring 30 days later).
