This document studies the power of CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) to predict stock market returns of Standard & Poor's 500 (S&P 500), a good proxy of the USA economy. VIX measures the market’s expectation of S&P 500 volatility, however many authors call it fear index because the value of the index spikes in moments of high selling in financial markets. Even though VIX is a common indicator in technical analysis and market sentiment (Baker & Wurgler, 2007), this study fits better to fundamental analysis of the USA economy as a whole.
