Stocks Spike In Stop Scare As VIX Slammed

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment aside to note that the 6 point vertical ramp in the S&P 500 (which just happened to stall perfectly at VWAP) was accompanied by no news, no other-asset-class support, and a smack-down in front-end VIX... S&P futures are back above the 50DMA once again intraday (as Discretionary names outperform and builders are battered). Did 3:30PM Ramp Capital leave for the Hamptons early?

 

 

 

and this spike in the indices was not seen at all in market breadth...

 

but the builders just keep getting sold every day...
