I find it interesting the market closed at the high Friday, and whenever that happens VXX always crashes into the close. But VXX stayed flat all day after 10am yesterday. Maybe this is starting to be the blowoff top that Slecerick talked about where both the market AND the VIX goes up

It is all about macroeconomics from here. The major earnings annoucements are behind us now, and for the next 2 months Eu, debt ceiling, China, fed, and all the other macroheadliners will determine direction.

I am going to peek at my retirement account returns now, just to get my buzz for the week!
