Looks Like Apple VIX (VXAPL) Futures Are Coming Soon

 May 14, 2012 05:53 PM

(By Vix And More) In case anyone missed it, I wanted to highlight a report yesterday from Reuters which quoted  Edward Tilly, President of CBOE Holdings, as saying that not only is the VIX product line ripe for expansion, but:

"We have benchmarks on a number of other products. I would point out one that is a favorite of mine that I wouldn't be surprised if I saw us launch in the near future - futures on Apple VIX."

The Apple VIX (VXAPL) was launched in January 2011 along with similar single stock volatility indices for the following:

A successful launch of futures on VXAPL might open the door for futures on one or more of the other single stock volatility indices above.

The chart below, courtesy of Livevol (StockCharts.com, you really should have VXAPL in your database) shows that VXAPL has tended to remain in the mid-30s, but has ranged between the high teens to the high 50s in the first 17 months of its life.

Recall that the CBOE Futures Exchange (CFE) launched futures on the emerging markets volatility index (VXEEM) in December 2011 and followed up by launching options on VXEEM at the end of January.
