Until now, no one has created indices that standardize the measurement of price risk among the world’s assets.
The Volatility Exchange (VolX) has developed RealVol Instruments and RealVol Indices based on realized volatility as defined by the RealVol Formulas. Realized volatility measures movement of an underlying asset regardless of direction. RealVol Instruments can be listed on any asset and are designed for every major marketplace: futures, options, securities, and over-the-counter. RealVol Indices are available in one real-time version and 40 daily versions as a factor to consider in making investment decisions. The flagship product, the 1-month RealVol Daily Index, measures daily (close-to-close) realized volatility of an underlying asset over 21 trading days and is used for contract settlement of RealVol Instruments. VolX products offer market participants the unique opportunity to trade upon or hedge against actual price risk directly in a listed, centrally cleared, transparent environment.
