S&P500 and VIX both in an uptrend?

The S&P500 rose to new All Time Highs today, intraday popping above 2400, but the strange thing is, VIX is also in a pattern of a Higher High and Higher Low since mid FEB. And Interest Rates have come down in Europe for the last couple of weeks, inflow into bonds. Makes sense then to see a correction in equities. But since the SuperTrend and Pattern of Price (Higher Highs and Higher Lows) are still positive > 2370, bears (including me) can only sit still or cut your loss. Bulls could use a stop loss for the short term of 2370-2355.

For the long term (years), I believe in the value of stocks, not for the next couple of weeks/months (APR & JUN) though.

S&P500 vs VIX 4h chart

Both the S&P500 and the VIX are on the rise, S&P500 for day 121 and VIX since mid FEB.

That’s weird, normally they should move in the opposite direction. Normally. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think stocks are the bubble now, just that it’s overextended to the upside and a 5-10% retest would make sense (S&P500 2200). But then again, sense never was useful when trading the markets.

The 4h SuperTrend stays on a Long signal if close > 2378. RSI 4h shows Bearish Divergence.

VIX (right side) is on a LONG signal > 11.61. Looks like someone is buying protection.

One of the two (S&P500 or VIX) has to give in…
