Fear Index Highest Ever

The “VIX” Volatility Index, AKA The Fear Index, just broke its all-time high of 48.40 set just last week. It topped out at 58.24 (up 29% at one point today ). The DJIA had its biggest intra-day point drop ever today of over 800.

To say the markets are “uncomfortable” would be an understatement.
