VIX Spikes and the S&P500

Epic 34% spike in the VIX Monday.

The 1oth largest daily percent increase since 1990 and biggest since August 2011, which, at the time was in the midst of a nasty correction/mini bear market.   The S&P500 is only off just under 3 percent from its recent highs made last week.

The following table show the post S&P500 returns after large VIX spikes.

Upshot?  Patience.
