VIX Cycles Set To Explode In March/April 2017 – Part 1

My recent analysis of the markets has shown what I believe to be an explosion in market volatility set to starting happening between February 21, 2017 and March 30, 2017. The historical VIX cycles have been running about 18~22 week intervals for expansion and extreme volatility levels.The period August 2015 to January 2016 represented roughly 5 months.The period between January 2016 to June 2016 represented roughly 5 months.The period between June 2016 to Early November 2016 represented roughly 5 months (just a little short of 5 months in reality).

The period between November 2016 to the next volatility expansion phase, if this cycle continues, should be March/April 2107 at a target date range.

How will this relate to the US major markets? I currently believe the recent “melt-up” will stay in place until we have some catalyst that will change the direction of the markets. In other words, the path of least resistance in the US major markets is upward right now – at least till something changes that direction/sentiment. The VIX cycles may be related to some catalyst event or external foreign market event that could change the major market directions – nut only time will tell.
