    Any one here follow the trin or vix.

    did you understand the premium? and how to interpret it?

    I have a take on it.

  2. yes. i watch the TRIN and VIX intraday and also keep track on the TRIN and VIX dailies.

    these are great indicators, and unlike macd,rsi, et al - these are not lagging indicators. they tell you what is happening, not what did happen

    the TRIN gives you a great idea of market internals as far as buying and selling pressure, and the VIX tells me when complacency or fear is overextended.

  4. not really. cause i don't trade ES
