FINSUM + Magnifi: This is the Best S&P 500 “Buy” Sign Since Before the Pandemic

(February 2021)

January and early February offered some rough times for investors. The two-week meme stock debacle had most investors’ hearts skip a beat and fear the entire market was in a bubble. However, applying some cold, rational logic to market movements yields a very nice picture. The reality is that VIX Index, Wall Street’s so-called fear gauge, just fell below 20. To put that in perspective, it is the first time that has happened since February 2020 (yes, BEFORE the pandemic). This means fear is leaving the market and could set the stage for more buying. According to one Wall Street strategist, “This is a positive divergence. Stocks churning but VIX falling. This suggests that ‘fear’ is receding from the market”.
