Summary

A Practitioner’s Guide to Reading VIX by Tim Edwards, PhD, and Hamish Preston offers a detailed examination of the VIX index, known as Wall Street’s "fear gauge." It explains how VIX levels are calculated from S&P 500 options and provides rules for interpreting these levels to predict future market volatility.

Our verdict

This book is a valuable resource for traders and financial professionals who utilise VIX in their market analysis. It excels in breaking down the complexities of VIX and providing clear, actionable insights into its predictive capabilities. However, it doesn't cover trading strategies that revolve around the VIX.
