"...why is the People’s Bank of China easing monetary policy while other global central banks are tightening?"

It's trying to ease the real estate bubble in whatever ways it can?

Never play the VIX - it is a losing bet 90% of the time due to time degradation in value. Unless you are a day trader.

Never use stops. They are arbitrary numbers (20% - 10% - whatever number you use is just an arbitrary figure). Just as much a chance to sell at the law as to sell on slide. If the thesis hasn't changed and it got cheaper that isn't a bad thing. Trailing stops are no better. Stops just under support isn't the worst idea but I am not smart enough to figure that out well enough - just smart enough to get myself into trouble there. Unless you are a day trader.
Likely scenario is, SPX goes 5000 first, followed by a 10% correction to 4500..
Long term trend is bullish for stocks, but this year should be choppy and market is subject to 10% correction in 2022 no matter people like or not, just as Peter Lynch ever said that market will have 10% correction every 2 years and 25% correction every 5~6 years ..
