« The VIX...Again | Main | And a Bumpy Ride It's Been »


OK, folks. It's about time to start looking for a bounce. It should be a good one, too. It's also going to be followed by more weakness, in all probability. The longer-term problem is that not enough folks have turned Bearish.

The good news is that the Relative VIX is quite high and that's a very good bottom-spotter.

There's a current chart and discussion of this on this thread:

Don't forget, "Weird Wolly Wednesday" (credit to Don Wolanchuk for that one) is coming. We often see some selling or at least wild trading into the Wednesday before expiration week.


We've seen wild trading before this coming wednesday, Mark. LOL.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.

Very good blog! Thanks!
