    Reference:
    http://www.tsptalk.com/mb/showthread...110#post308110

    So, is Yahoo the only place to get this VIX thingy... I have been using Google finance and was curious if I needed to move to Yahoo since it seems like a lot of the "^" like indices a lot of y'all are using are only on Yahoo...

    Help?

    You can also watch the VIX movement on Stockcharts.com ($VIX) or on BigCharts.com, just type in VIX there.

    No, wasn't an issue in the middle of August. It could definitely bounce from here... but I am staying away from volatility plays, they are dangerous.

    A VIX reading below 17 has become the new threshold for Fed intervention. I wonder what the Fed could possibly do if (when) the VIX hits 20, 25, 30, 35, 40.

    I suspect a VIX in the 10 range that is held for six months or so will start to bring in mom and pop. That's when there will be danger lurking but not until then with QE3 at our backs.

    We're teetering on all time lows right now. A drop to 10 would be around a 30% drop. You would think that would equate to at least another 15% gain in the market.

    I don't see it.

    I feel the rumblings under my feet as this economy is percolating - waiting for new leadership that will arrive. Soon all one will hear from Democrats is all we needed was four more years, four more years. The big eared guy will be history and the economy will boom....it's basically common sense. Everyone needs to be invested to reap the gains from a 10 level VIX - you just know mom and pop will save the day. Anyway that's my plan - staying fully invested all the way.

    There is nothing else they can do. They announced unlimited QE, their quiver is empty.

    Not likely to happen in the near future; at least until the economy ACTUALLY improves instead of being inflated by the Fed blowing smoke up it's @$$...

    Not going to happen BT, we have 4 more years of this, so any recovering is a long way off...

    RMI,

    I have my money where my mouth resides - and I'm prepared to become terribly wealthy. You just have to place your bet...
