Monday’s Factors and Events

the Dow could always rally to complete wave-4 (with a c-wave movement that only makes a marginal short-term high this month); in this scenario, I suspect that the next near term move would still be lower.

If we assume that the asymmetric relationship has only changed for the short term, then we would likely be talking about the VIX correcting toward 30 through April, while the Dow would likely be trending net sideways until ~May 1. In this scenario, the debacle would explode back into the headlines next month.
