"... 1 Factor Model:  In the Chart of the Day below we simply show VIX vs S&P500 (S&P500 is inverted on right axis). 

 

What you’ll simply notice is how simply effective it is to take down gross exposure and tighten net exposure when VIX goes <13.   

 

Global risks haven’t “greatly moderated” so building exposure into VIX 10/11/12 embeds the assumption that those risks cumulate latently with no impact on risk premiums or prices.  That seems like a pretty heroic assumption."
