One of the most disturbing volatility patterns is VIX up, SPY (or SPX) up. Vol should decline into the face of a rising market. If it does not that is traditionally a tell that stocks will sell off at some point in the near future. If I knew when that was I would tell you after I bought a boat load of SPX puts. That date appears to be sometime next week.
the SPX was up today..barely...the VIX was up by about .40%. In fact even when the SPX was up 9 today the VIX was still up. When we see this type of action it can mean something. Typically its bearish the market.
