Keybot the Quant remains long but the algo number is only four points from the signal line. The bulls remain in control but the bears are using higher volatility to push stocks lower. Watch VIX 13.48 as the line in the sand. Stocks will sell off if the VIX is above 13.48 and moving higher.  Stocks will rally higher if VIX drops under 13.48. VIX is currently printing 13.63 in the bear camp by only 15 cents. Volatility will dictate market direction today.

8/18/15; 9:00 AM EST =
8/17/15; 9:36 AM EST = +20; signal line is +16
8/16/15; 7:00 PM EST = +34; signal line is +16

Note Added 10:53 AM: VIX is down to 13.52 at the 13.48 line in the sand. The market direction story will now be told. Volatility, the VIX, will either bounce or die from this level and the stock market will move in the opposite direction.
