The VIX

Sure, the Dow and the S&P 500 are down, but one index is at an all-time high: the VIX, which measures investor fear.

As a volatility index, the VIX tries to measure the market’s expectation of change in the S&P 500 over the next month. With the market in weird, wild territory, the VIX has been going through the roof.

I mostly like old, unpopular things, like from 2002. I'm also 102 years old.
