Have you considered using the VXN, the volatility index for the Nasdaq? (February 28, 2001)

  Yes, we are indeed looking at it. The VXN is a newer measure of volatility that covers the Nasdaq. It was needed and it will be a useful tool. Will be. Right now there is less than one month's data on the index. Yes it is has shot higher since mid-January, but that does not tell us anything at this point because there is not backlog of data to compare its moves to the Nasdaq's moves as there is with the VIX. We are watching it, but we need to get more data to know how the moves between the index and this volatility measure match up.
