Comparing VIX Properties

The 'VIX is above 20' decision references the VIX's value.


Why would I want to check the VIX's level? 

This allows you to determine the level of volatility present in the overall market. The higher the VIX, the greater the chance for volatile price moves.

Can VIX levels effect a trading system?

Yes, some systems may work better in a high volatility environment while others may work better in a low volatility environment.
