The Situation

In these extreme volatile times, it is interesting to look the
​behavior ​( correlation ) ​of the OIL price in relation ​to the
​other ​Financial Assets.

​​​​As shown by the charts below, this correlation tells that the
​risks in Financial Markets wordwide have been behaving
​according to the OIL market. 
​​​​As the OIL market have become
​more and more since the ​summer of 2014 as US Dollar
​collateral for the main explanation for financial behaviorists.

Market have become so nervous that the pure and simple Risk On Risk Off is in summary the way OIL price is evolving; a scary trend indeed...​​

Just to show you how the market technical behavior have become lately, take a look at the first chart below (15 minutes intraday chart) between the Mighty SP500 Index ( SPY ETF ) and the Oil price ( WTI ).
Same trend, same spike, same correction phase...​

And this behavior is translating into a negative correlation between Oil price and the VIX Index.

​​We must realize also that there is a negative Macro Correlation between the Oil price and US Dollar Index, as the Oil price is a pure collateral within that world globalization environment and that the market have been trading lately in a binary manner with the oil price...  As the US Dollar Index was breaking out in September 2014, Oil price was breaking down. ​​( Fourth Chart below - Yellow Trendlines - Ellipses )
