Category: Finance:US Finance JUDGED at 80
Owner:7188, ux
Judge:38, highlander
due date:2006/01/01

The Claim

This is a scaled claim that pays 20*(VIX_min_2005 - 5.90) where VIX_min_2005 is the minimum value of the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index (CBOE VIX) recorded in 2005.

As of 5/4/05, the maximum value of VIX in 2005 was 18.59, which occurred on 4/18/05; the minimum value was 10.90 on 2/4/05. In 2004, VIX ranged between 22.67 and 11.14. In 2003, VIX ranged between 35.66 and 14.66.

Sample payout table:
* VIX never goes below 10.90 in 2005: 100
* VIX falls to 10 in 2005: 82
* VIX falls to 9 in 2005: 62
* VIX falls to 8 in 2005: 42
* VIX falls to 7 in 2005: 22
* VIX falls to 5.90 or below in 2005: 0

VIX data can be accessed from http://www.cboe.com/micro/vix/historical.aspx or a custom charting tool such as http://www.bigcharts.com. The "New Methodology" (9/22/03 and later) data should be used. The ticker "^VIX" can be used on Yahoo! Finance to see its current value. The claim pays based on the minimum daily low of VIX, not the minimum closing value.

This claim should be judged promptly after 1/1/06. If VIX falls below 5.90 before 1/1/06, the claim should be judged at 0 immediately.
