Volatility index or VIX is also known as the Fear Index as it shows the amount of fear in the stock markets. When you read any report on the stock markets, it is quite common to see comments that the volatility index has shifted. As we all know, the VIX is calculated by the NSE on a real time basis and is published on their website. But the questions are much larger. What exactly is the concept of VIX and how is VIX calculated? How do you interpret shifts in the VIX number and what is the ideal VIX for any market? Are there are any investment decisions that you can make purely based on the VIX? That is what you really need to find out for yourself
