« August 20th Blogger Sentiment Poll | Main | Sector Trading Envelopes »


Why were these VIX spikes not included in your study?
@ 102%
May 5, 2006...Vix close 11.62
June 14, 2006...Vix close 23.81
and by lowering the bar to 98%,
Feb 16, 2007...Vix close 10.02
March 5, 2007...Vix close 19.63

To find the spikes we ran a 20% filter on the VIX. This provided us with periods where the VIX went up at least 100%, without a decline of 20% on the way up. In effect, the "spikes" we list above are more or less straight up without a significant decline. Hope this clarifies.
