This is actually Part 3 if you think about it:
Volatility Strikes Back – My member note on 1/28, published by SeeItMarket 1/31, featured how Volatility didn’t look like it was going to be surpressed much longer. VIX exploded on 2/5, rising 130% at its high this year and wiping out 95% of the value of inverse VIX ETNs XIV and SVXY. I also wrote about how the markets and commodities, especially gold and oil/oil+gas plays, looked to be topping. “Careful” was my theme on each chart.
Not Done – My 2/5 member note was published 2/7 by SeeItMarket wherein I wrote about how the one-day-wonder of Monday’s 1000 point Dow drop was “NotDone” referring to the pullback in indices, oil/oil+gas cos and gold. We had another 1000 point Dow drop on Thursday 2/8.
Not Done (Part 2) – My member note 2/7 pulbished by SeeItMarket 2/9 highlighted my thesis of why I expected the pullback to persist, especially in financials and oil/oil+gas plays. XLE hit my $65 target Friday, after falling from my first post (1/28) at $77.50 and WTIC falling from $66.66 to $59 so far.
