S&P 500 Collapses, VIX Posts 2nd Biggest Surge in Over 10 Yrs

183 4 6
Utter capitulation. Few other terms can better describe the market currently. In a market that has grown so thin, dependent on perceived central bank support and has supported exceptional excess; a meaningful selling event would be akin to striking a match while neck deep in gasoline.
recently VIX is not much of an indicator - most of the time stating the obvious) I guess it became too efficient to predict anythin...

VIX only tells you about market liquidity - if liquidity is increasing, VIX falls, if liquidity is decreasing, VIX rises... It's really as simple as that.

actually nope... VIX is derived from averaging cost of options (mostly puts) on SnP500 futures=)

Nice comparison...
