CBOE Volatility Index

According to the Complaint, the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: CBOE participated with others to manipulate the VIX “fear gauge” in a systematic manner during the 2004 to 2018 timeframe, causing economic damages to investors who traded in VIX futures, options and certain other VIX derivatives. As a consequence of these activities, the complaint alleges that CBOE and a few of its preferred traders violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Commodity Exchange Act and the Sherman Act. When the truth was revealed to the investing public, shares fell, causing shareholders harm.
