Striking Distance

This is day 8 of our membership promotion, running now through the end of the month for members and non-members alike. We’re offering a 25% rebate off the first month of Monthly and Quarterly auto-renew subscriptions. Annual memberships are available at a very substantial discount (rewarding those who act quickly!)

Remember, the annual pricing is available to current members. If your current membership hasn’t expired yet, we’ll tack your new subscription on to your current expiration date. This can be especially valuable for those who took advantage of a special last year which offered a discount on the first year of a auto-renewing annual subscription.

To sign up for a new monthly or quarterly subscription, CLICK HERE. For details on an annual subscription, drop us a line with the subject line “sign me up!”

After SPX’s break out on the back of a 37% plunge in VIX, it’s no surprise that the VIX has kept it within striking distance of new all-time highs.

In dropping that 37%, VIX completed a deep retracement of its rise from 9.97 — the lowest it’s been since 2007 — to 16.28.  The .886 retracement is considered the last stop before prices drop through the previous lows.  Imagine: risk being considered lower than at any time since 2007!

Yesterday, VIX spent the entire day dancing around that .886, with a dip below it every single time SPX started slipping.  The message to algos was that VIX was about to drop to new lows and, therefore, stocks should be bought.It was enough to keep SPX from completing a simple retracement from its .886 to its .786, or any meaningful dip until the final minutes of an otherwise nonsensical session.Today’s a new day, as CL is closing in on our 48.35-48.45 target and investors are no doubt anxious to express their disappointment with the lack of details provided for the fantastic, big-league tax cuts “revealed” yesterday.

Despite the slight bump in futures overnight, our downside targets remain intact – starting with 2384.
