Market sentiment complacent in the eye of the storm

The VIX is trading at the bottom of its two-year range, a possible signal that fear is leaving the market. Paul Britton, of the Capstone Holdings Group, and Nouriel Roubini, of Roubini Global Economics, share their insight this morning on CNBC.
I think Britton's points at the end re most investors not having portfolio protection or insurance of any kind is really important. People who have amassed a bulk of their savings have to be worried about protecting themselves from loss. The vast majority of financial “advisors” never address the issue of meaningful protection, as if market risk is a wild card that can't be predicted or controlled. Abosulte rubbish…

    Last Friday's Moody's warning: “substantial execution risk in the implementation of their exit strategies for USA/U.K. from their massive stimulus and easy money policies”.
    Can't wait to start using the inverse ETF-s………

    Hi Danielle,
    The markets are on a unbelievable tear, and have been for over a year now. Over the last several months it always seems that on down days the market is some how floated back up. The volume lately has been quite low compared to last year and it seems that whenever we do get heavy volume days it is to the down side. I would like to know if at any time in yyour career have you ever seen markets behave the way they are now? I am not into the manipulation theory but it sure seems odd that we just continually go higher and higher every single day. What is your take on things these days?
    Thanks,
    Parm

    Thanks to your Blog and others like it I'm sitting at 88% cash and hopefully by the end of today it will be over 95%. I have about 5% in an inverse ETF. After almost 2 years of active trading I managed to earn my way back to all time highs in my portfolio. At the risk of losing out on any more upside potential, I'm quite happy making next to nothing and eliminating all downside risks. Thanks Danielle!
