Well, like the Greek referendum in 2012, they came, they voted and stocks rallied.  I am talking about the Crimean’s who don’t seem to want anything to do with the rest of Ukraine.  How it all shakes out is a bit of a mystery, but some very select Ukrainians and Russians will not be able to go to their ATM machines anymore when they fly to London or New York.  That message hit loud and clear as both Russian and US stocks rallied back a bit today.

VIX trying is to make new lows but will it?

ATTENTION:  The Options Insider and Option Pit are co-sponsoring a special one day event.  Read about it here.

As of 3:30 EDT the market is flat lining just down about ¼ of a percent and VIX is up .33 with the VIX futures just flat on the day.  For the most part, stocks have been leaning on a few things since the last blowout NFP.
