It's started

ATHENS, Greece -- Police in the Greek capital say a bomb has exploded at the offices of American financial services firm J.P. Morgan Chase Co., causing no injuries.

The blast occurred early evening Tuesday in an upscale area of central Athens, following a warning telephone call to an Athens newspaper.

The extent of the damage was not immediately clear.

Did you happen to notice the VIX was up mostly yesterday with the DOW UP 160 points. Usually, the VIX would have been down throughout the day and down big. Not the case. Do you read anything into this? It is the first time I have seen this in a long while.

I see it up at the open with steady decline after that. Don;'t forget what VIX measures. It is not just the anti-stock index but rather the expectation of volatility in the future.

But anyway, I have seen this before. It just does not last all day.
