Volcker Rule

The Volcker Rule, which is part of the Dodd-Frank legislation enacted in 2012, imposes limits on proprietary trading by commercial banks.

The Volcker Rule aims to prevent banks from using their own funds to make speculative bets in the markets. This way, the banks’ losses on their trades won’t directly restrict their ability to lend to consumers and businesses.According to the rule’s proponent and former Federal Reserve chairman, Paul Volcker, this trading activity is partly to blame for the 2008 financial crisis.













VIX stands for Volatility Index, which is usually dubbed the “fear index” since it gauges the expectations for asset price fluctuations for the next 30 days. More specifically, the VIX tracks the implied volatility of maturing S&P500 options.A rising VIX suggests that asset prices are expected to be more volatile or have larger fluctuatios, reflecting greater uncertainty or fear in the market. A falling VIX index, on the other hand, suggests the opposite.
