VIX Volatility Daily Chart

The VIX 200-day MA cross is a key market metric. Market bulls are in fine shape as long as the VIX is under the 200-day MA at 16.33. Market bears will growl strongly if the VIX moves above 16.33. The Keybot the Quant algorithm identifies the 18 level as where serious stock market negativity would begin. The bears need VIX above 16.33 or they got nothing.

Note Added Saturday, 11/7/15: The VIX peaked at 10:05 AM EST yesterday (one-half hour after the opening bell) at 16.00, then proceeded to fall on its sword trending lower the remainder of the day. At 2:42 PM, VIX is at 15.24 and drops to 14.33 at the closing bell. Volatility moves inverse to the stock market so stocks rise during the last 90 minutes of trading. Central bankers pressure volatility lower to keep stocks elevated. The VIX remains under the 200-day so the bears got nothing.
