The Market Crash of 2008 continues.Â I watched the carnage unfold on my market model in real time and I've never seen this level of panic before.Â Scary.Â The VIX touched 58 yesterday, a new all time high.Â It probably would've touched 60 if we went any lower than the lows yesterday.
Everyone at work is scared about their 401k's and pulling money out. What did I do? I upped myÂ % contribution yesterday.
Ah, the almighty ^VIX, everyone's favorite indicator and the one index that a lot of option traders watch with bated breath.Â What if I were to tell you that you can use Stock Neuromaster to generate BUY/SELL signals for the ^VIX?Â Would you be interested?
I'm sure that option traders and writers would be keenly interested if a^VIX neural net model generated a SELL signal for a new short position because it would mean volatility is expected to drop.
Volatility begets more volatility and it looks like every time the annualized volatility number crosses the 13 DMA of volatility, the QQQQ prices become very volatile. Right now the Q’s are in a relatively low state of volatility but we all know that low volatility begets higher volatility and vice versa. I’m looking for more pain in the coming weeks.
Many of the issues that required my attention will be resolved shortly and my readers can look forward to a more regular posting schedule starting sometime this week. To tide everyone over, I took a snapshot of the recent volatility the S&P500 has been experiencing. It sure looks like financial armageddon out there and we might actually see negative returns at the end the year for the major indices. Then again we might not, who knows.
