The CBOE’ VOLATILITY INDEX’ (VIX’) has been doing good numbers increasing over 150% in the past two weeks.
The index is now retracing but additional bullish action is expected according to what I am seeing coming from the charts.
CBOE VOLATILITY INDEX’ (VIX’) Analysis by Alan Masters
Before increasing by 150%+, the VIX’ touched a low point, which is the...
The VIX is called the 'Fear Index'. That's for a good reason. In times of high volatility what do you do? People in general stay out i.e. they sell off and keep their powder dry, or look for safe havens. They fear for their money, even if they don't admit it.

Now is good level to enter and aim at least to 12.000 level or even higher, if...
This is not a cry to long VIX by any means, but it seems we are off the lows having had the lowest implied volatility in the first quarter of 2017 EVER recorded. Realized volatility was the lowest in 40 years.
What is does tell us though is that the rally is fading, uncertainty growing, and the key level to watch is the fresh low set by the S&P500 week before last.
