Near-term uptrend for the VIX
VIX, the so-called fear gauge, has an inverse correlation (not always perfect) to the major U.S. Indexes. When the VIX topped in June, the S&P 500 bottomed. When the VIX bottomed in September, the S&P Index topped. Take your cues from the charts and trade accordingly. The current resistance point is 19 followed by 21. The extent of the upward movement for VIX will determine the extent of the retracement for the S&P 500 Index in the post-election correction.
