VIX conundrum

Bill Cara on VIX:
VIX, in my view, may have been a good technical indicator in the past, but I too have recognized its dubious nature in the past year.

In addressing the VIX issue, and not my own concerns, I understand that VIX is a measure of how volatile future markets will likely be, according to the participants themselves. As the next reader comments, there has been a revolution in risk management, and I understand that as well.

I do not understand, however, how so many capital managers today can honestly believe they can trade out of situations caused by extreme events, such as the Kerkorian bid for close to a billion dollars worth of GM stock at very high prices, or a Crude Oil contract that could zoom or collapse, or a major dump of USD by an Asian Pacific central bank, and so forth.

Not being a very experienced investor, I just heard about the Volatility Index recently. Earlier today I was reading an article written by Steve Sjuggerud regarding the VIX. You might be interested in his perspective.
