If they can't get this VIX back under 20 now...

 

This is all over, stopped by their own market pumping and VIX suppression ingenuity...

 

They never thought this black swan would appear...

 

Newton's laws win again...

 

Today we're getting an oversold bounce...

 

But their TURBO button is broken now...

 

And history says... WATCH OUT !

The tool XIV was totally broken; it's down from 140 to about 6 in just a few days.  It was down more than 90% on a single day last Monday.  With the stock prices just below historical high it's very difficult to rebuild that tool and make it working as before, i.e. expect more frequent VIX spikes.

This doesn't take a PhD to understand...

The VIX thing, interest rates and the central banks...

If they can suppress volatility and Interest rates to support Obama...

They can sure as hell try to turn it around to dump Trump.

I think that explains a lot if you think about it.

They don't complain when a leveraged product helps the market go parabolic.

Was thinking of how to reverse this little disaster...

 

Put the Night Monkeys on it in the futures market is the only thing I can figure out...

 

Kill it overnight and watch them scramble on the open...

Maybe they lost the handle on VIX because that's what they had to do...???

 

Let's face it we were at the "end of useful life" for that tool with VIX MAXXED out at 8 or 9...

 

It was tough to try to move it down to take markets higher...

 

Now it's over 20, they got a huge cushion to set up another big leg higher...

 

Always think like the criminal banksters....

 

Things are less random than we think.
