GS starts to look ugly but could be pretty again

Well for GS, $260 we barely knew ya.  After melting the upside for the 1st quarter of 2017 GS is actually down for the year and very near prices right after the election.  The GS/Venezuela duet is not playing great in the news and the stock is getting clobbered.  You would think the coming dump of US Gov securities from the Fed would push up rates but that has not happened yet.

Thinking ahead with VIX

Time moves forward and the pull of the Fed and rising earnings are keeping stocks at forward multiples we have not seen in quite a while.  Daily we get the call for the next correction.  Doubtless it will happen at some point but it seems tough right now.  Markets were very focused on the circus in the Washington DC and now that is just what it is.  A circus with a ring that goes around and show really does not change a whole lot.  As a consequence, VIX is still in the 10 handle and realized vol is 11% for SPX with short term options under 6% ATM IV in the SPX.
