    Is Volatility Set to Drop Further after Stock Market Rebound?

    Stock markets around the world have rebounded from the panic selling that rocked markets between January 26 and February 9. A sudden spike in volatility (over a 100% increase in the S&P 500 VIX) could have forced risk managers to rebalance their portfolios, leading to the sharp sell-off. Equity markets in the US recorded the best weekly gains since 2013.

    Why Volatility Is Likely to Remain High This Week

    Equity markets found no respite as global indexes struggled for a second straight week in the week ended February 9. Two days saw a 4% drop in indexes, leading to a huge surge in volatility in equity and bond markets around the world. The week started off with a drop in bond yields, whose rise was a key trigger for the recent market rout. The brief US government shutdown, which ended with the approval of the US budget, is likely to add to the US deficit and affect bond markets.

    Is There a Specific Reason for the Sudden Market Meltdown?

    In financial markets, a 10% drop from a recent high is considered to be a “correction.” For US indexes, January 26 was the day that the markets closed at the highest level. A 10% fall is making investors question that theory. The most interesting observation is the increased volatility in volatility indexes, primarily through volatility-based ETFs and ETNs like the iPath VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX), the ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures Short (SVXY), and the ProShares VIX Short-Term Futures (VIXY).

    What Drove Stock Market Volatility Higher Last Week?

The key reason was the rout in the equity market, fueled by concerns about rising interest rates that could increase borrowing costs. The Fed left interest rates unchanged at last week’s meeting, but a hawkish statement that followed the meeting made the markets realize the approaching hazard of rising rates.
