    I'm curious does anyone know what the VIX would have been during that 1987 meltdown...I know they didn't publish it until after then, but maybe someone out there has back-calculated it...

    Personally, I agree that there's not nearly enough fear in there yet for us to bottom...VIX in the 60's I will reconsider.

    Thanks vitajex. I find it amazing that we haven't seen a close above 50 since that period in '87, including 9/21/2001.

    Looking at those numbers and looking back over the past year, I'm beginning to think these curbs do more harm than good by telling us how and when to trade...

    Seems that market crashes are an unpleasant but necessary part of the cycle...
