This index has a price history dating back to 1986, which remains the same. As of September 22, 2003, the name was modified — the original-formula index is now known as the Cboe S&P 100 Volatility IndexSM and is now disseminated under the new ticker symbol VXO (prior to September 2003 it was the “original” VIX Index).
