Volatility indexes higher by about 2% which is typical as a whole 5 trading days sit right in front of the screens.
My take, higher as we probably get to the 1,527 level over the next few days- wow a whole 4 points on the SPX level as I type. And never a mention that the all time high on the SPX at 1,552+. I guess its better for ratings at 1,527.
