It's not a flash crash just a nice range expansion day.

Most major indices closing between 3-5% down no circuit breakers tripped.

I like it. Its healthy. Youll hear that phrase from the Bulls. This is a panic per the reasons I mentioned in the posting, the $VIX sellers.
For everyone else, itll be a blip on the monitor a few weeks from now.

They may be tripped tomorrow morning. The new Fed chairman is asleep at the wheel. I guess he hasn't learned the protocol yet.

Greenspan and Yellen were talking down the market, maybe they don't like this new one?

I don't like this selloff in the least....  PE wise we are 27% overbought so we can go further down... Investors betting bearish on the market was low and cash in money market was low also as of Friday...    I'll see if people are betting against the market tomorrow...   If they aren't we will likely fall further.....
