Older Data for the Cboe S&P 100 Volatility Index (VXO)

In 1993, Cboe Global Markets, Incorporated® (Cboe®) introduced the original version of the Cboe Volatility Index® (VIX® Index), which initially was designed to measure the market’s expectation of 30-day volatility implied by at-the-money S&P 100® Index (OEX® Index) option prices. Ten years later in 2003, Cboe together with Goldman Sachs, updated the VIX Index to reflect a new way to measure expected volatility, one that continues to be widely used by financial theorists, risk managers and volatility traders alike. The new VIX Index is based on the S&P 500® Index (SPX®), the core index for U.S. equities, and estimates expected volatility by aggregating the weighted prices of SPX puts and calls over a wide range of strike prices. The price history for the Cboe S&P 100 Volatility Index (VXO®) matches the values for the original version of the VIX Index that was introduced in 1993.
