When the VIX is low, the volatility is also low. When the VIX is high, volatility is also high, usually accompanied by market fear. Buying when the VIX is high and selling when it is low is a strategy that should also consider different factors such as price action and indicators, etc.

Which is the best VIX number to be considered?

VIX values greater than 30 are generally meant to be in large volatility resulting from increased uncertainty, risk, and investors' fear. VIX values below 20 generally correspond to stable, stress-free market periods.
