If there is one single indicator to signal market tops and bottoms this is it. The charts scream sell the market everytime the VIX hits 14.

An even better way to play this is by using divergance between price and volatility. VIX fails to make new low while price makes new high.

8/17 VIX hits all time low at 13.30 with DJIA at 13,275.
9/14 higher low on VIX 13.51, higher high on DJIA @ 13,593.
10/5 higher low on VIX 13.67, higher high on DJIA @ 13,610

As the DOW grinds up the VIX should make lower lows. Not so, divergance signals topping action.
