The Vix saw a dramatic rise, especially the last 20min of trading. It currently lies on resistance, which may facilitate a market bounce and should indicate a correction's bottom.
This could be the end, but I can not rule out every scenario. We may see a healthy SP500 correction to the 62 SMA (around 1150). This could translate into a VIX inversion with the SP500. This inversion indicating a true market correction bottom. (Although the size of today's Vix move would indicate such a correction's bottom, hence the wrench.)
I made no secret that I started to purchase names. At the same time, I have dry powder to go in heavy at the 62 SMA (which approximately translates to the 14SMA on the weekly.)
