Today's pump-and-dump that failed to hold the S&P 500 in the green for 2014 was an almost perfect deja vu all over again of yesterday's. However, today saw a very rapid after-hours 6 point melt-up in S&P 500 futures thanks to a WTF-inspiring collapse in VIX (from 14.4% to 13.7%!!)

 

The pump-and-dumps...

 

and the WTF-inspiring smackdown in VIX...

 

Totally "normal"...
