Thanks for the tip. I think it is because there is more technical-oriented players in the market than before.

Interesting situation but technically there are some opposites. Thanks for sharing your observations though. The SP500 200-day MA is currently sloping downwards, opposite to the two previous two instances where it was going up (October and mid December). Increases in volatility then, resulted in price falls. By analogy, today, when the Sp500 200MA is downward sloping the opposite should be happening i.e. increases in volatility should result in price rises ( I say "should" in a sense only to make this picture balance perfectly).

Yes, I agree - interesting observations. I just read an article that somewhat contradicts these findings at Basically, what they were saying is that depending on the area of the economy you are looking at, things could be in really bad shape, not-so-bad, and actually there are areas that are in really good shape. Their view is that we bide our time and wait this one out to see truly where the numbers lie in the coming months.

VIX broke sharply below 200 day MA today, just like in August '06. Put on yer rally caps.

I checked out the article referenced above: It's so interesting how people are reacting to this market. There are other bloggers out there (Warren Buffet fans especially) that have already thrown in the towel and are calling this a recession. We'll see.

This is a good article. I agree, if there is a method of saving costs then I am all for it. The last place I would have thought to notice a disease was in the eyes.
