    This chart explains why the stock market drop in May is not like the drop in December

    There's a key measure of stock market volatility that shows why this month's sell-off has been different than the drop in December. The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, is sometimes known as "the fear gauge." The VIX helps measure Wall Street's expectations for large shifts in the stock market in the coming months by looking at prices on S&P 500 options. The VIX is near 18.50 on Friday – close to its 200 day moving average of 16.98.

    Hedge funds bet the sell-off is over: 'Correction has run its course'

    Despite a deterioration in U.S.-China trade relations and a sell-off starting in early May and continuing through Monday, many hedge funds have closed positions betting on a VIX spike. The call-to-put ratio for VIX options — that is, the percentage of people betting on a rise versus a fall in volatility— has since returned to lows not seen for months. "It would appear that the majority of hedge funds do not expect another sharp rise in volatility, and that they have concluded that the correction has run its course," Takada wrote.

    Stocks skid as healthcare plunge obscures China rebound

    Stocks around the globe fell on Wednesday as a continued flight from healthcare shares dragged on Wall Street, overshadowing upbeat economic data from China. The S&P 500 dipped as the healthcare index dived 2.9% to erase its year-to-date gains on continued fallout from concerns about potential changes to U.S. policy, including a "Medicare for All" proposal by Senator Bernie Sanders. The decline in U.S. stocks weighed on MSCI's 47-country world index, which was buoyed earlier by better-than-expected Chinese data showing the country's economy grew 6.4% in the first quarter.
