Strategy Video: The Risks of Following the VIX Back into Complacency

Strategy Video: The Risks of Following the VIX Back into Complacency

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The VIX and S&P 500 have led an uneven return to confidence and complacency

• Fundamentals have not improved as materially as these leading benchmarks insinuate

• Generally, the risks of a return of volatility are too great to return to a passive strategy

The disorderly market unwind seen most prominently in equities and the VIX volatility index through the first half of October has been largely wiped out. Should we simply find comfort in this quick turn around for the measures of uncertainty and speculative appetite - in other words, returning to a state of complacency? Or, has this vicious stumble exposed a crevasse that lays bare the severe risks of returning to blissful ignorance? In Today's Stratgy video, we focus on the dangers of being lulled back into a 'long risk' mindset without a clear plan for another falter in passive positioning.
