The CBOE Volatility Index (NYSEArca: VIX) remains relatively calm as headlines speak of looming disaster, according to an article on MarketWatch.com.
Investors looking to play the VIX may find success in inverse VIX ETFs and leveraged ETFs tracking the VIX, as the VIX continues to follow its early October downtrend.
Investors should be aware that VIX-based ETFs and ETNs are not exact replicas of the VIX and should be wary of tracking error.
For investors who believe the VIX is a clear representation of the future, article contributor John Nyaradi suggests long positions in country indexes like the iShares MSCI Italy Index (NYSEArca: EWI).
