Index Vixen

Well, I just finished going through 32 different index charts, and I’ve got to say, it cheered me up quite a bit. I wanted to show you some select charts which I think are worth a glance.

The first one is the NASDAQ volatility ($VXN) which I think we can agree has been absolutely smushed back down to its basing pattern. In other words, the froth has been completely blown off the top of this beer mug. Fear has exited stage right.


So Long!

This won’t mean much to most of you, but to a few of you, it’ll be cool news – – for a while, our historical data has been surprisingly limited. The NASDAQ ETF (symbol QQQ) is a great example. Until yesterday, it only went back a decade. You will now find that our equities go back WAY farther now (QQQ is shown below, with its entire history since it was invented). Just sayin’!
