    Wall Street’s ‘fear gauge’ for the stock market has clung to its highest level in 7 years, by one measure

    U.S. stocks have been resurgent —Thursday’s bearish action notwithstanding — but a gauge of stock-market volatility, known as Wall Street’s “fear gauge,” has held above a key level for the longest period since 2012, according to one market technician.

    Markets Need to Keep an Eye on the Lucky Country

    The Australia dollar is usually one of the major beneficiaries of a global “risk on” rally in markets like the one this year given its close economic ties to China. The latest decline came as Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Philip Lowe shifted to a neutral policy outlook as he acknowledged increased economic risks at home and abroad. Indeed, the nation’s economic data has been consistently falling below analysts’ forecasts since the beginning of December as measured by the Citi Economic Surprise Indexes amid a weakening housing market and high consumer debt loads.

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

    The ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF is a way for investors to make bearish bets on volatility. 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.

    This Market’s Almost as Boring as the Super Bowl

    The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, mirrors this myopic attitude, falling on Monday to its lowest level since early October. “We caution against chasing the rally in risk assets, particularly in areas vulnerable to growth downgrades, geopolitical risks or sudden shifts in supply/demand dynamics,” Richard Turnill, BlackRock’s global chief investment strategist, wrote in a research note Monday.

    [$$] VIX Auction Bets Land Chicago Trader With $1.3 Million Fine

    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.
