VIX Volatility and SPX S&P 500 1-Minute Charts Illustrates Inverse Correlation
Volatility and the stock market move inversely to each other as Keystone often points out. The charts clearly illustrate this with the VIX at a top at 2:42 PM EST on Friday then trending lower into the closing bell. Conversely, the SPX bottoms at 2:42 PM and rises into the closing bell. Central bankers keep their foot on the neck of volatility to maintain elevated stock markets. Market bears need the VIX above the 200-day MA at 16.33 to create strong selling pressure. Under the 200-day MA the market bulls are not concerned about any short term market pull back since stocks will recover and rally. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only.
