    [$$] One Year After VIX Blowup, Investors Still Feel Sting of Volatility Bets

Investors can also use futures contracts tied to the Cboe Volatility Index, Wall Street’s fear gauge, or derivatives like options to make such bets. Speculators, a group that includes hedge-fund investors, trimmed bearish VIX bets late last year, as they anticipated greater turbulence in the market.

    Cboe Global Markets Inc. fined a trading firm for trying to include improper options trades in an auction tied to its marquee product: the VIX volatility gauge. Last year, questions escalated over whether a monthly auction tied to the VIX was being manipulated by traders. On Friday, Cboe said in a disciplinary filing that Akuna Securities LLC submitted S&P 500 option orders to increase the likelihood that certain derivatives bets would be included in the auction that helps determine final VIX settlement values.

    Investors remain on edge even after big January comeback — and that might be a good thing

    The fragile psychology and tentative stance of market participants right now will probably serve the market well for a while, according to strategists. Traders are wary, shown in part by the stickiness of the Cboe Volatility Index hanging up near the somewhat elevated 20 threshold in recent weeks despite the rally. The public has continued to pull money from stock mutual and exchange-traded funds, on a net basis, even with the market finding its footing in the past month.

    Cramer's charts suggest lower volatility, higher stock prices in coming months

    CNBC's Jim Cramer and technician Mark Sebastian review recent volatility in the stock market and explain how the layout has changed. The stock market's volatility index, also known as the fear gauge or the VIX, has been trading lower after peaking in December at the height of the late-2018 sell-off. The recent action suggests that "the stock market has more room to run," says Sebastian.

    The reasons to be bearish on the stock market now are swamping the bull case

    Market bulls continue to see strong U.S. GDP growth, a tight labor market and surging corporate profits. A once-pristine fundamental backdrop suddenly looks tarnished, as worries accelerate that economic growth may have peaked, political headwinds are forming, and rising interest rates will stand in the way of future fiscal stimulus from the Trump administration. All it took was a negative headline for Apple about iPhone demand and news about a lingering regulatory issue for Goldman Sachs to send Wall Street into another tailspin.
