It is easy to forget how destructive and dangerous certain things can be when long periods of time go by without them. Volatility is one of those things. For the better part of a decade, it went into hiding and came out only a handful of times, as if to remind us of its existence. With the onset of COVID-19 in March, volatility spiked and caused widespread damage across global markets. Today, just a short 3 months later, it would appear that vol has once again gone into hiding. At least that is what participants would like to believe. The reality? Volatility, measured by the VIX, continues to trade at highly elevated levels, indicating in no uncertain terms, that it could pounce at any moment. When? Why? That is what we are going to find out in this week’s segment of Real Vision Live with Matt Rowe, CIO of Headwaters Volatility.
