Volatility breaks the down trend

Despite most indexes closing a little higher, the VIX managed to break the 7 day run of declines, settling +2.2% @ 13.87. Near term outlook is for higher equities, and that should equate to VIX remaining in a rather tight 15/12 zone into next month.



VIX looks set to remain under the key 20 threshold for some weeks, probably no earlier than mid April.
