First time below the MM 100 in the Biden era
The S&P 500 has not been below the 100-day moving average since the end of October. Even then, it was only for a few days. Before that, you need to go back to May 2020 for a sustained stretch below the key level, which is at 4326 today.
The VIX hit 27.69, which is the highest since May.

The bond market confirms risk aversion as 100-year yields fall 7.1 basis points to a new session low of 1.2989%.
