CBOE Volatility (VIX) Index

What geopolitical event would it take to move the fear guage?
No reaction for the VIX to recent geopolitical events

CBOE Volatility (VIX) Index

VIX is inversely correlated to the major equity indexes. Geopolitical events are among some of the factors that can cause an upward movement in VIX. There has been no reaction to recent geopolitical events. And there are many! The known knowns are Ukraine, Gaza Strip, Iraq, Syria and Ebola. What would it take for an upward movement in the VIX. I cannot answer that question but it would be prudent to have some insurance in your portfolio. And insurance has never been so inexpensive.

Reference the last analysis for the VIX.

VIX daily chart analysis

Near-term uptrend for the VIX

VIX YTD Candlestick chart

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.
