S&P 500 versus a Risk-Reward Measure

SP:SPX   The S&P 500 Index
306 3 6
While my Risk-Reward Index is a little more global in perspective (an aggregate of G10 10-year government bond yields divided by FX volatility ), this offers a similar evaluation of the market. The 10-year Treasury yield is a baseline for 'regular' returns in the market while the VIX             is a popular 'risk' measure. Combined, they see what level of return we should expect for the risk taken. Prices have diverged from this rudimentary fundamental valuation for years...
Why dividing Vix by 10 year yield is a risk reward factor? care to elaborate?

It's an imperfect means of establishing a big picture 'return' measure to one of 'risk' to evaluate broad sentiment (risk-reward). Returns are generally a premium to the baseline established in government bond rates or central bank benchmarks. The VIX is a favored 'fear' metric by many. So, it gives a general assessment.

i see

thing is VIX is derived from put option premiums on S&P500 futures, so my idea is that in this case you are dividing apples by oranges)
