If you're a bull, you kind of want it to stay there... :bull:

Nice work <_<

Sorry I don't read the boards very often, and they tend to get ignored over here, maybe a good thing for a quiet life. B) ..but just caught this post so thought I'd add to it.

Here is a post I made a while back on my blog(March), slightly longer timeframe, regarding the
importance of rejection or acceptance of VIX 15 area.

The point I was making, not all on the chart, is that REJECTION and major topping process is highly likely,
because breaks of 15 and low volatility occur in 1st couple of years of a bull market ...not 3+ years into it,
which is average length of a bull market.
Since ..we have as per your chart seen rejection at 15......and also, the high volatility spike last year
is also a 'warning' historically.

best,
Mark.
The most important question in trading is 'where is your stop', because u can 'call it right' but be stopped out for a loss, and if u trade without a stop u risk destroying your account. The hardest part of trading is dealing with emotions whilst in a trade, to think and act as if you have nothing on the line, when infact you do. I try to think like the 'criminals', and trade like a robot :-)

Crossing over fifteen remains the magic number for now and the warning for a possible sell off. But so far no cigar...

imo this time around if the vix can rise above 17 then this market has topped and is done. just because of where the ewave is right now. all fwiw
