If a stock rally is particularly strong, the VIX may fall below 15, which indicates complacency prevails in the stock market.
The VIX is a measure of implied market volatility over the upcoming thirty (30) calendar days, based upon how much options traders are paying for options contracts in the options markets to protect their long positions against market downturns (see: How to Trade Options ).
