Asbury Research’s Keys To This Week
October 17th, 2011
Key #4 of 9 on The US Stock Market: The VIX

Key #4: Volatility: The VIX.  INTERMEDIATE TERM BULLISH.  The VIX finished Friday’s session at 29.24, which marks the first time that “the fear gauge” has been below 30.00 since August 4th

Chart 2 shows that the last time the VIX atypically lingered above 30.00 for an extended period was between May and July 2010, which led into the July 1st low in the S&P 500 that  preceded a +36% advance into the May 2011 high.
