With equity indexes closing broadly weak for a second day, the VIX managed the second consecutive net daily gain, settling +1.6% @ 17.96 (intra high 18.78). Near term outlook is that equities will resume higher, for a test of critical resistance in the sp'2040/60 zone.
Little to add.
In the scheme of things, VIX remains relatively subdued. The key 20 threshold looks out of range in the immediate term.
