AMEX:VXX   IPATH S&P 500 VIX SHORT TERM FUTURES TM ETN
168 15 3
Notes on chart
Does this same pattern show up in the $VIX? I find the $VXX to be a very skewed product and have had losing positions in the past a result. It's not as correlated as others ex. $/Yen and $FXY , Euro/$ and $FXE. Just my 2 cents but still an interesting idea.

I don't know as I don't get intra day on VIX. But I trade VXX, so that's what I follow. It's true the correlation is odd.

I did a quick correlation test in Excel last summer on the daily close for multiple time frames and the correlation wasn't that great.

I only consider short positions on $VXX as I've bled too much trying to get it to piggy back $VIX to the upside.

I personally think short equities, so long VXX.

Wednesday FDX reports in AM, if they don't beat big time, I say market dips, also FED mtg Tues/wed, friday option expiration, oil not done sliding yet, Russian rates spike, rubble crashing, all says volatility. I had VXX pulling back just a bit (your diamond here), bought early today, and then up again, and today CAT closed below double bottom 90.00 , believe it completes to TL, as K posted earlier, helping VXX up. TZA finished strong. Thanks for that CAT post K, really made me a believer.
