    $VIX Volatility Index - New Methodology INDX

    SMIVX Sound Mind Investing Managed Volatility Fund USMF
    SVOAX SEI Institutional Managed Trust Managed Volatility Fund USMF

    some of these?
  4. Why do you think VIX is forward-looking? High VIX values point to an expectation of a large move but nothing can be said about the direction. Ths is hardly "forward-looking".
  5. GS :cool:
  6. what else can you use?
  7. As "forward-looking", nothing really. The only thing that can come close to "forward-looking" in the case of trading is high probability setups.
  8. Try a crystal ball mizhael.

    And the VIX is not a security.

    all stocks, futures, commodities are forward-looking

  10. Discounting the future and looking into the future are not the same thing.
