    It's incredible how low the VIX is.


    And the analysts find the same nail to hit. (see "Fear vs. fear puts markets on ‘trendless’ path: Barclays")

    Summary: people aren't seeing any obvious drivers, but aren't getting much out of their safety investments, and are cautiously diversifying into riskier instruments. They're afraid to commit, but afraid to miss out on the fun.

    But what fun is there to be had if the VIX says there's no fun in the foreseeable future?

    I'm going to be researching long-dated straddles on bellwethers while they figure it out.
