VIX Action All Kinds of Funk

The VIX is in the news again this time because it has stopped negatively coorelating iwth the S&P 500.  While this is true,  especially in the futures, I would argue that has more to do with the complete collapse of movement in the SPX.  For a week the SPX drops a little, in tiny increments, and VIX falls.  Now we have the VIX rallying and futures rallying even as the SPX is up.  I would argue a couple of things:

1.  We are off a long weekend coming from a period of time where the SPX barely moved.

2.  SPX is finally starting to wake up,  even if its a rally
