The VIX jumped higher at the open, and continues to rise, now +6% in the 13.30s. However, there really isn't anything in the immediate term to suggest the market bull maniacs have anything to be concerned about. Metals remain weak, Gold -$10
I remain dismissive to todays gain in the VIX. Six percent of a small number, still only gives a low VIX..barely in the teens.
Later this week, if sp'1850/70s, then VIX will be in the 12/11s.
Notable strength: STX
...headed much higher..eventually.
