The Index maintains an average weighted settlement date of five months in the future by rolling a portion of the position in the fourth month VIX futures contract into the seventh month VIX futures contract on a daily basis. The VIX is a commonly followed measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500 over the next 30 days.
