OptionMetrics Adds Volatility Indexes to Global Database

Adding volatility indexes to OptionMetrics' global database gives clients more ways to access the data.


OptionMetrics already carried data on the volatility indexes─operated by CBOE and Stoxx, respectively─in its IvyDB US and IvyDB Europe products.

"The VIX has become extremely popular in recent years, with professionals consistently watching it, quoting it and viewing it as a major index. Anyone looking at international markets should be looking at the VStoxx and the VIX," says OptionMetrics president David Hait in a statement.
