    The Fear Gauge Is Sounding an Alarm Even as U.S. Stocks Surge

    The VIX Index -- often referred to as the market’s “fear gauge” -- is up over the past three sessions, as of 1:40 pm. in New York. The higher reading belied the brisk advance of more than 2% for the S&P 500 Index over the same three-day stretch. During Friday’s 1.1% advance in the S&P 500, the VIX -- which measures the 30-day implied volatility of the S&P 500 based on out-of-the-money options prices -- also moved higher.

    With the expected pricing of Uber next week, U.S. IPO issuance will be at the highest level since 2008. Volatility is also depressed, with the VIX on a steady downtrend.
