Battle for the $VIX: Just before Jackson Hole the $VIX has continued to stay above its 200MA, an unprecedented feat in 2017. It’s a Friday and Yellen & Draghi are giving speeches the result of which may influence how this indicator closes today. Watching the 50MA just below, it’s also creeping northward. The last time it crossed above the 200MA was 2 years ago:

August 22, 2017

$VIX setting up for a battle here between the 50MA & 200MA. If the standard bull program continues it’ll drop below the 50MA in short order and stay below. If it bounces things may signal a larger shift.

$XIV monthly chart. For a derivative product it has acted amazing technically as the consecutive bounces off of the monthly 5 EMA have shown. The move continues to be unprecedented and is making a new high today. The eventual reversion will likely be dramatic

July 11, 2017

$VIX spikes appear to get shallower and shallower and last less and less time as the reflexive tendency to buy the dip is “deeply ingrained” as Mohamed El-Erian called it in reference to a tweet I had sent out earlier today:

Yet as compressed as the $VIX remains it’s now dancing between its 50MA and the 200MA. As the range is so narrow it will ultimately not take much to see a lasting spike above the 200MA. Indeed, so far in July the $VIX has remained above the 50MA on the daily closes. A daily close above the 200MA could set up for the long awaited spike to the upper trend line. There also remains an open gap in the 21/22 range:
