    abstract = {Recently, the number of volatility indexes has increased. However, it is not clear whether futures on these indexes provide real opportunities to hedge asset class‐specific risks or they are merely a form of highly correlated, information overload. This paper investigates this question by examining dependence relationships among 29 volatility indexes in three categories using five techniques. While class‐specific variation matters, we find that higher order relationships are present, and that a significant level of spillover, across these indexes exists. One common, market‐driven volatility factor appears to dominate the interrelationships. We propose three possible explanations for this phenomenon. We argue that much of risk can be hedged using options on the VIX.}

    abstract = {We compare two interpolation methods which are widely used to construct discount curves, forecast (projection) curves, basis curves, and other financial curves. We find that the area‐preserving, quadratic‐spline method is superior to the “smart quadratic” method, yielding smoother, more natural looking forward curves with few of the artifacts exhibited by the smart quadratic curves. We also show how to efficiently implement both methods by an iterative bootstrapping scheme.}
