US stock market volatility index and fear in stock trading

US stock market volatility

“The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a measure of expected price fluctuations in the S&P 500 Index options over the next 30 days. The VIX, often termed as the “fear index,” is calculated in real time by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).” Source: Investopedia

Panic and fear create opportunities for stocks to buy, stocks to sell, stock trading. The increased volatility for the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) this week may present a lot of stock trading opportunities the following week. Stocks have declined from their highs, but caution is required as buying the dip is not applicable for all stocks, it is only suitable for stocks with good fundamentals and good financial performance, at reasonable levels now. It will be not logical again if a stock market rally occurs next week for stocks with poor fundamentals to rise again. But trading differs from investing, and speculation will be always present in stock trading, stock investing.

Stock market news for US stock market, February 28, 2020

Another selloff for the US stock market ended with trimming losses at the close of the trading session. The big news for US stocks came from Fed chairman stating that Fed is monitoring the coronavirus developments closely and can act if necessary to support the economy. This was a big catalyst for buying stocks at lower levels and so the major stock market indexes came off their lows at the close.

“Fed Is Ready to Cut Rates in Response to Coronavirus. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on Friday issued a rare and brief statement attempting to reassure investors who’ve been in a panic all week. He signaled that the U.S. central bank is prepared to cut interest rates to protect the economy from the growing threat.

Powell: Economy faces ‘evolving risks’ from virus

Powell wants you to know that the economy remains in a good position (its “fundamentals” remain strong, as he puts it), but he says the outbreak threatens to knock it off course.

“The coronavirus poses evolving risks to economic activity,” Powell’s statement says. “The Federal Reserve is closely monitoring developments and their implications for the economic outlook.”

The release ends with the most important piece of information: “We will use our tools and act as appropriate to support the economy.”
