DP Show: What's Up with the VIX?


What's up with the VIX and breadth? And what are they telling us about the market this week? A big news item for this edition of DecisionPoint is a New Long-Term PMO BUY signal for the SPX, but the Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA) splits, along with the new component and weighting shake-up on the Dow, overshadowed the SPX today. Carl presents detailed analysis of Apple and the technical picture of Tesla. Erin and Carl discuss the changes in the Dow and the cap-weighting changes that many may not be familiar with. As always, Erin finishes with her Diamond of the Week!
