The VIX is a measure of implied volatility. Generally, the higher the VIX, the more fear there is in the market, and the lower the VIX, the less fear. A falling VIX can often be interpreted as investors are feeling less risk-averse and more confident of the future.

I think the market is going higher, and the VIX is portending the move.
