The dollar may tell a better story than the VIX.
The US claims to be in selling dollars to the world.
If the dollar can't weaken, it's a sign of stock selling.

We're all trying to understand how much risk is in the world right now. We think watching the dollar is a powerful measure to understand risk. We typically love watching the VIX (NYSEARCA:VXX) as a risk indicator. That said, we are watching the dollar (NYSEARCA:UUP) to let us know how markets follow through.
Fed Selling Dollars
The Fed made a strong statement of support for foreign government currencies. They appear to offer a large supply of dollars in the market to support other currencies. If it doesn't work you have a signal how much concern is in the market. We expect that concern to translate into stock prices.
The Fed said this Friday, "The Federal Reserve is prepared to provide dollar liquidity through its existing swap lines with central banks, as necessary, to address pressures in global funding markets, which could have adverse implications for the U.S. economy."
