00:45 - Since its April low, the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index -- a gauge tracking U.S. equity swings -- has climbed 25 percent through Thursday, beating similar indexes for other asset classes, Bloomberg Tradebook highlighted in a note. While still much lower than at previous peak levels, the VIX’s average this year is the highest since 2011 amid concern over global growth, the timing of Federal Reserve interest-rate increases and lackluster earnings.
