Wow. The VIX index has doubled in about a month. I’m thinking this is not a good indicator that the worst of this “market correction” is over.

Since gold and bonds are kind of flat during this correction (not that flat is bad – it beats 10-15% drops within 1 month), I’m wondering if a well balanced portfolio that can weather any storm would be best served with a sprinkle (maybe 2%) of VIX added to soften the blow.
