Market Seizure? The VIX is Spiking Again

This weekend I was with Dr. Philip Kennedy, a world-renowned neuroscientist. While discussing the patterns of market behavior, Dr. Kennedy noted, “The recent spikes in the VIX are similar to the heart beat patterns seen immediately before a patient falls into seizure.”

That was Saturday. Today, the VIX is spiking over 20%. As you can see in the chart below, the market may be signaling a seizure.
