To quote my buddy, Zacks’ Jeremy Mullin, “The VIX is back baby!” Sure enough as volatility took off for a second day in a row. The headlines are blaming North Korea tensions but I don’t think I’m buying that. The more reasonable explanation for me is we hit a Fib extension target and now are coming down to test the 50-day on the NASDAQ. Simple as that.
