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

Nice work dry.gif

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. cool.gif ..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,

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