China knows they have a lot to do with the outcome of our next election. Maybe not as much as the Russians did in the last one. What do they think.

VIX measures the implied premium on puts and calls. That almost always will happen in a drop off. But implied vol on options can in fact escalte in a rally. They will usually subside when nothing is happening at all.
