Peak Complacency

Talk about things that nobody cares
Wearin' out things that nobody wears

Complency measures like the VIX are not good timing mechanisms. But they reflect springs coiling tighter in advance of major trend reversal.

Never think that lack of variability is stability. Don't confuse lack of volatility with stability, ever.
