OPINION

US VIX (volatility / fear gauge)

Even though US equities are within 1% of their all-time high we are seeing bullish contrarian sentiment indicators e.g. The number of market commentators who are expecting a correction remains very elevated and near to the levels reached in March 2020, and in December 2018. This high latent bearishness can best be interpreted as bullish as surprises appear still likely on the upside. The VIX looks destined to test its pre-COVID levels before a buying opportunity may present itself in 2022.

Fear Gauge (VIX)

The US VIX or Fear Gauge as its often referred to remains very comfortable implying professional investors aren’t scared just yet and although some would take this as a reverse indicator of complacency MM leans towards a more bullish interpretation – if stocks can wobble as they have through September without the VIX trending higher we believe the...

Volatility Index (VIX) 25.71

While stocks came under pressure overnight the move in the volatility index implied a lack of any real panic i.e. an orderly sell-off that was positioned for ahead of time.

US Fear Index (VIX)

The Volatility / Fear Index (VIX) soared over 20% overnight as stocks fell indicating investors are becoming scarred and want to buy some downside protection e.g. Puts.  At this stage were looking for another test of the 30% area and potentially 40% as the herd feels a touch complacent short-term.

5 stocks / positions MM is honing in on as volatility escalates.

Global equities have experienced a tough start to the week but on balance we believe they have further to unfold on the downside with the S&P500 still only 3% below its all-time high, hardly scary stuff with the VIX still noticeably well below its May highs even with the Dow tumbling 725-points last night.

Sentiment indicators

The US VIX Index, or “Fear Index” drifted higher last week even as stocks again registered fresh all-time highs, the combination of US reporting season and rising COVID numbers was probably  the cause of the markets increased uncertainty.

The US Fear Index (VIX)

The US volatility index (VIX) caught my attention overnight as it held firm even as US stocks ground ever higher, usually I would interpret this as a warning signal of pending weakness for equities but with US reporting season kicking off imminently it makes sense.

Sentiment indicators

The “Fear Index” remains around its pre-pandemic levels although last week it did pop above 20% when US stocks wobbled, we remain bullish from a risk / reward perspective but the trend does remain down.
