First, to separate different market situations, we focus on how VIX spot (í µí±í µí°¼í µí±), VIX futures (í µí±í µí±í µí°¹), and their basis (í µí±í µí°¼í µí± − í µí±í µí±í µí°¹) perform different roles in asset pricing. Secondly, we decompose the VIX index into two parts, volatility calculated from out-of-the-money call options and volatility calculated from out-of-the-money put options. The analysis shows that information captured by out-of-the-money put options captures more useful information in predicting future returns.
