Recently, the wariness is reflected in the VIX (the CBOE Volatility Index). The VIX persists at the very bottom of its range in the 10s and 11s (versus a lifetime average in the 19s) as a new administration prepares to roll out novel economic policies amid considerable uncertainty and skepticism. Volatility is unusually low at the moment.

The index, which is the most followed measure of fear for U.S. stocks, is within the lowest decile of all VIX daily closes since January 1990, according to Convergex' Nick Colas. Fund flows into VIX exchange-traded funds have slowed, but haven't halted. The iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Tern Futures ETN (VXX) accounted for pretty much all of it or $289 million, while the VelocityShares Daily Inverse VIX Short-Term ETN (XIV), which is designed to move in the opposite direction of futures contracts, saw outflows of $228 million.
