The range of products on Swissquote’s trading platform now also includes options & futures for the popular VIX volatility index.

Now, Swissquote’s clients can use market fluctuations as a source of returns.

As well as the VIX, clients of Swissquote can now trade Cboe options for the following indices:

  • S&P 500 (SPX)
  • Dow Jones (DJX)
  • Nasdaq (NDX)

These trading instruments are part of Swissquote’s US market offering, with access to real-time prices.

The VIX index, also known as the “fear index”, is one of the best-known benchmarks of expected volatility and is based on options prices for the S&P 500 index. If the value of the VIX rises, larger price fluctuations are expected, while a fall in its value indicates a decline in volatility.
