U.S. options volume at highest since 2011 as volatility soars

NEW YORK, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Growing concerns about the
economy and markets sent volatility soaring on Wednesday and
pushed trading volume in the U.S. options market to its highest
level in more than three years, as traders moved to hedge their
portfolios on fear of further market gyrations.

The CBOE VIX index – the stock market’s “fear gauge,”
- rose to touch 31.06, its highest level since December 2011,
before pulling back to close at 26.25.
