Buy signals from VIX

INDEX:SPX   S&P 500 Index
85 6 1
When the VIX             spikes/peaks, it is typically a strong buy signal.
there is one little problem with this approach 2007/08/06.

Use stops below/at recent lows. 200pt stop on the SPX. nice.

True but you always need to correlate it with some momentum and averaging indicators to better gauge when the price action has fallen as far as it will before reversal. VIX spikes only forewarn that there will be fluctuations in price. It never guarantees a "buy" single.

Look at RSI, UO and MACD for confirmation signals on trending.
Happy trading

I agree the SPY / DJI is going up, but the VIX spiking is not a strong indicator that it is time to buy.

I agree. No position should be entered using just one indicator. VIX is just one of the many. But it does help in capturing the big moves as you can see in the chart.
