Regardless. Up: US Treasurys, German Bunds, US Dollar, Swiss Franc.
Down: Australian dollar.

Most important is the move in the VIX futures. I have often noted that the spot VIX is not as important as looking at VIX futures out several months. There are days when the spot VIX moves, but the futures do not.
Today is a little different. The futures contracts are moving, though not dramatically, but the move is worth noting.
