Yet Another VIX Record: 58.36

The VIX spike to 58.36 seem to trigger a little buying on weakness.

At this point, one of the more important trends to watch is the relative levels of buying on weakness vs. selling into strength.

Am I the only one to notice that the TRIN index hit zero (0) today?

It didn't stay there, but looking back it seems kind of important, as the last time it went anywhere near as low was around the Bear Stearns event in March.

Is there somewhere on the web where you can go to see buying/selling volume and volatility all on one chart?

Hi Jeff,

I cannot think of a site on the web that offers what you are looking for.

Readers, any suggestions?

The TRIN low today was 0.45. When did you see it get to 0?
