    With risky bets back in play, stock selloff revives 'Volmageddon' memories

    Months after he lost millions when an esoteric corner of financial markets cratered in February, former Target Corp store manager Seth Golden is betting against volatility again. Golden, who says wagers on market calm earned him millions in the past six years, is among the investors who have kept trading complex financial products linked to the Cboe Volatility Index (.VIX) - Wall Street's "fear gauge" - in the months since some of those products blew up. It was the Johnny-come-latelies and people who shouldn't have been trading volatility in the first place," Golden said.

    Wall Street's 'fear index' briefly jumps above 28, marking its highest level in 8 months as Dow tumbles nearly 700 points

    The Cboe Volatility index spiked Thursday afternoon, reaching the highest level in more than eights months as the main U.S. benchmarks convulsed lower. The so-called fear index gained more than 12% to reach an intraday peak of 28.84, marking the highest level for the gauge since Feb. 9 when it hit 29.06, according to FactSet data. Thursday's move comes after a 44% surge for the volatility gauge on Wednesday, which coincided with an 831-point tumble for the Dow Jones Industrial Average . The moves have taken the VIX, which uses S&P 500 options to calculate expectations for volatility over the coming 30 days, well above its long-term average around 20. The gauge typically falls as as stocks rise, and vice versa. Thursday stock trading extended Wednesday's bloodbath. The Dow traded down 699 points at session lows, down 2.7%, while the S&P 500 index was down by more than 2%, and the Nasdaq Composite Index was facing a more than 1% drop.
