    Cramer's charts suggest lower volatility, higher stock prices in coming months

    CNBC's Jim Cramer and technician Mark Sebastian review recent volatility in the stock market and explain how the layout has changed. The stock market's volatility index, also known as the fear gauge or the VIX, has been trading lower after peaking in December at the height of the late-2018 sell-off. The recent action suggests that "the stock market has more room to run," says Sebastian.

    Volatility Crushed Like It's 2009 as ‘Pale Green Lights’ Flash

    During December’s market mayhem, the daylight hours were traders’ worst nightmares. On average, the S&P 500 Index would slump marginally overnight, but tumble 1.1 percent from the U.S. open to the close of regular trading hours. Stocks are still averaging a slightly larger drop overnight, but the benchmark index is climbing 0.8 percent on average from the open until the closing bell sounds.

    The Market’s Obstacles Are Both Macro and Micro

    Everyone knew China’s economy was slowing, so blaming the Asian nation for a setback was just a convenient excuse to mask a deteriorating business, like when retailers blame the weather for a slump in sales. Apple’s announcement probably would have had only a short-term negative impact on equities, with traders coming around to the idea that Apple’s problems were of its own making if not for a disappointing manufacturing report Thursday morning from the Institute for Supply Management. Its December index of new orders — a key leading indicator of future activity — fell to a level that barely registered as growth.

    As fear rises on Wall Street, strategists warn the worst is yet to come

    Stocks plunged on fears of a recession, and the Nasdaq was temporarily in bear market territory, a 20 percent decline from its recent highs. The Cboe Volatility Index temporarily jumped above 30, its highest since the major market sell-off in February of this year. Strategists blame recession worries brought on by a tone-deaf Fed and continuing fears that trade wars and slowing global growth could sink the U.S. economy and chisel away at corporate profits.

    Markets Should Embrace Volatility While It Lasts

    Buy stocks when there’s news that the U.S. and China are making headway in resolving the escalating trade war. To recap, stocks were weighed down early Monday after news broke over the weekend that China summoned U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad to explain the U.S. request to extradite Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou from Canada, where she is being held. Stocks then opened big on Tuesday on the news that U.S. and China officials held a call to discuss trade, followed by a Bloomberg News report that China is mulling a proposal to reduce tariffs on cars made in the U.S. to 15 percent from the current 40 percent — bringing the U.S. back in line with what other countries pay.
