Brief Market Update: Just another absolutely slow day. So far we have only 600k minis traded, of which over 180k came from globex. POMO is now over, having propped up the S&P Futures (ES) to touch a session high at 1684 even. Currently ES is +2.65 handles at 1683.25.
VIX has been pushed lower, and is currently at the session low of 13.17 (-4.36%). Volumes are also light in front month contracts, with the heaviest volumes in the 20 and 24 Call contracts. If the VIX closes down again today, that will make it 11 of the last 12 trading sessions, where the VIX has closed lower.
