The SPX:VIX Relationship

After giving it fairly prominent play over the past few months at Technically Speaking, Ron Sen asks whether the SPX:VIX ratio chart works effectively as a risk metric.

Many people seem to be giving up on the VIX lately, but the SPX:VIX ratio is a special case. Part of the problem with this ratio is that it compares one trending number with another one that oscillates. Using Ibbotson data as a guide, we can assume -- over the long term at least -- that the SPX should return about 10% per year, while the VIX should oscillate around a stable mean. Interestingly, if you add a 10% trend line to the SPX:VIX ratio chart going back to 1991 in order to compensate for this, you will discover that 15 ½ years later, the trend line almost perfectly bisects the current Bollinger bands.

If you study the chart for a little longer, some interesting conclusions emerge:

  • except for the latter half of the dot com crash and the Asian financial crisis, the SPX:VIX ratio has rarely strayed far from the values predicted by the 10% trend line
  • since 2004, the SPX:VIX ratio has hugged the 10% trend line very closely
  • the current deviation above the trend line is matched only by mid-2000, early 1994 and late 1995 – three periods that turned out to be the beginning of a deep bear, a mild bear and a strong bull market

I think the SPX:VIX ratio is indeed a useful risk metric, but I recommend using it in a manner that compensates for the long-term bullish bias in stocks and/or that focuses largely on the relative peaks and valleys.

At the moment, I think the SPX:VIX ratio is flashing a mild warning sign, but ultimately where you come down on the ratio is probably more dependent upon what you think about reasons for the historically low VIX than the historically high SPX.

شركة تنظيف بالباحة التنظيف من الأشياء المهمة التي يجب الاهتمام بها فهناك العديد من الشركات التي تقوم بعمل التنظيف بشكل ممتاز كما تعمل بدقة كبيرة وكفاءة عالية.
فيتم التنظيف بعدة طرق مختلفة ولكن تحتاج الى ايدي عاملة مثل شركة تنظيف بالباحة

حتى يتم العمل على أفضل وجه فيجب القيام بالتنظيف باستخدام مواد التنظيف التي تتناسب مع كل ما تقوم بتنظيفه سواء كان سجاد او أثاث أو ستائر أو أرضيات أو غيرها من الاشياء الاخرى والاماكن الاخرى.
فتحتاج عند القيام بالتنظيف إلى أدوات تعمل على التنظيف بشكل جيد وبطريقة جيدة تنظف بعمق ولكنها لاتتلف الاشياء الخاصة بالمنزل.
كما يجب أيضا الاهتمام بالتعقيم للحمامات والمطابخ والتنظيف بدقة لأن تلك الاماكن أكثر تعرضا في بيتك او منزلك للاتساخات بشكل كبير شركة تنظيف بالباحة
وتحتاج إلي التنظيف بشكل مستمر .
كما أن هناك أيضا العديد من الاشخاص الذين يعانون من الاتساخات الموجودة بالاثاث والكنب بمختلف أنواعه فلكل نوع من أنواع الكنب طريقة مختلفة عن الاخري في التنظيف سواء كان من الجلد أو قماش أو مغطى بالخشب فيجب تحديد نوع المنظف الذي تقوم باستخدامه في التنظيف قبل الاستخدام حتى لا يتسبب في أي ضرر للكنب أو للاثاث.
لا تقتصر عمليات التنظيف علي مكان محدد دون الآخر بل إنها من الأمور الهامه لجميع الأماكن سواء كانت منازل أو فلل أو شقق وايضا جميع أنواع الاثاث وخاصه السجاد والانتريهات الذي تتراكم فيه الاوساخ والأتربة والروائح الكريهه.
كما يجب أن تتم عملية التنظيف للخزان أيضا والذي يعتبر من أهم الأغراض في كل منزل، ومن أهم أساليب النظافة أن يتم مراعاه التنظيف الجيد لمواسير الصرف والمجاري التي تعتبر من أكثر الأماكن التي تتعرض للانسداد وتراكم الحشرات بها وتتسبب في الأمراض.
كما يجب أن تتضمن عملية التنظيف أيضا التخلص من القاذورات بشكل مستمر وعدم تراكمها في المنزل فهي من أهم أسباب انتشار الحشرات والروائح الكريهه والتي هي مصدر للأمراض المختلفه.
النظافة من الأمور الضرورية والتي يحثنا عليها الدين الإسلامي وتتطلب تنفيذ دقيق واتباع الخطوات التي توفر اعلي نسب حمايه ممكنه والتخلص من مشاكل المنازل التي تنتج عن انتشار هذه الاوساخ المزعجه.
شركة عزل أسطح
من المعروف ان عزل الأسطح من المهام التي من الممكن ان تقوم بيه شركة عزل أسطح فهي من المهام التي من الممكن ان تساهم بشكل كبير في حماية الأسطح شركة عزل اسطح بالباحة
