With no nuclear explosions in the Korean peninsula, and Hurricane Irma 'better than expected', US equities opened moderately higher, and built significant gains into the afternoon.
As equities climbed, volatility was duly ground lower, with the VIX back in the 10s, which is again reflective of the mainstream's high confidence that 'everything is going to be just fine'.
Despite today, nothing has changed. A 4-5% correction for the main market is due into October. That won't likely be enough though to result in a Sept' or Oct' bearish monthly close.
