VIX Testing Long Term Downtrend (at 32.81)

The VIX is seeing activity with the recent market weakness and pending GM bankruptcy. It looks like major GM bond holders OKd a revised debt-equity deal which could put a cap on volatility but watch out for a rough reorganization, runaway Treasury yields and activity in North Korea. Option premium could get a bid if the downtrend in fear gets broken, at least in the short term. Watch the 33.24 resistance level. We'll see what happens.
