VIX still at extreme low as 2017 draws to a close

What would it take to move the VIX?  Maybe I shouldn’t ask this question.

VIX at extreme low.

What is the ‘VIX – CBOE Volatility Index

VIX is the ticker symbol for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Volatility Index, which shows the market’s expectation of 30-day volatility. It is constructed using the implied volatilities of a wide range of S&P 500 index options. This volatility is meant to be forward looking, is calculated from both calls and puts, and is a widely used measure of market risk, often referred to as the “investor fear gauge.”
