AZOPTION Volatility Index Analysis 波幅指數分析
In Hong Kong, HSI Volatility Index (VHSI) is used as a measurement of the 30-day Expected Volatility of HSI.
With reference to the VHSI calculation methodology, we try to calculate similar Volatility Index for all the other Option Classes.
Due to the limitations of public data, the calculation is simplified, and we named it as "Simplified Volatility Index" (Code begins with "SV").
VHSI (Blue Line) vs SVHSI (Green Line) comparison : [LINK
Result: VHSI and SVHSI quite match with each others.
Other example: SVHHI (Simplified Volatility Index of HS China Enterprises Index) : [LINK
Result: HHI has similar movement as HSI, but with much higher volatility.
Base on the VHSI interpretation, we can find the "Expected Return Range of HSI in the Coming 30 Days" statistically :

The upper and lower blue line are the expected settlement range of the corresponding contract at the expiry date. (1 standard deviation)
You may change the number of standard deviation value to adjust the range tolerance.
