VIX IndicatorMarket participants use extreme levels of the VIX as a contrarian market timing indicator for the equity market. High levels of VIX are usually considered as a capitulation signal that indicates under-valuation of stock prices and thus, potential buying opportunities. Conversely, abnormal low VIX levels indicate potentially excessive
complacency and thus, may signal a market correction.
