As I have been stating, this year is gonna be full of wild swings. Its really a volatility thing because of the parabola. A ST low is now close, today/tomorrow morning, as a mini panic is upon us. Looks like some were short vol:

Ouch.  SVXY has traded at an additional discount of 50% from 4pm close today at $35 per share.  $140 to $35 in a month.  Lot's of stuff written the last 2-4 months how the short Vol trade could take the stock market down.  ES futures traded right at 10% down in 6 trading days from 2878.50 to 2595.75 a few moments ago.  Welcome to the game Geronimooooooooooooooooo Powell !!!
