The Situation

​​​In these still too complacent times, it is interesting to look the behavior
​( correlation ) ​of the VIX and the Gold in relation ​to the US Dollar  ​​(USD-DXY)
​and the Mighty ​SP500 Index.

​​​​As shown by the charts below, this correlation tells that the risks have not started
​to be fully priced into the foreign exchange market yet in terms of volatility:
expect more volatility in the US Dollar and SP500 in the next few sessions...​​

​​​​VIX/GOLD correlation getting below the -0.60 zone on October 7 
​and VIX ​at 18.40, near its 200 DMA ( Day Moving Average ),
​indicating higher volatility ahead...

Observe the US Dollar last previous bottom ( on September 17 2015 ) at the Support Trendline from a Wedge that started back from August 7 2015 ( First Chart below - Grey Lines - Bottom Panel ) ; VIX/GOLD correlation was then near the critical zone of  0-.60. In that case,​ USD started a huge move in ​a higher Volatility set up; looks like the same pattern to me today. ( See first chart below - Red and Grey Trendlines.)

​The US Dollar Index is within a Wedge and near the Support Trendline: Breaking that level will increase tremendously  the Volatility of all US Financials Assets. ( See first chart below )

For the SP500 index, it started a Bullish Trend within a Channel that started back on August 24 and already at the Resistance Trendline. Like the US Dollar, on September 17, it did reverse when we had the VIX/GOLD correlation near the critical zone of 0-.60. ( See 2nd chart below - Grey TrendLines. - Bottom Panel )

​​So both the US Dollar Index (DXY) ans the SP500 are within a technical set up that call for a  higher Volatility environment as history suggest according to the VIX/GOLD correlation.
