The fear in their eyes

TVC:VIX   Volatility S&P 500 Index
The VIX is known as the 'fear index'. It has taken a pulse north which is not unexpected, as volatility on the P SPX500 took a leap recently.

The VIX is not an index I trade, nor do I know anyone who trades it. Its value is in keeping a finger on the 'pulse' of the stock market.

When the VIX begins to pulse, expect trouble. Some see trouble only after it has happened.
Comment: Fear and greed rules markets - any debates? :)
