Traders Breathe Greatest "Sigh Of Relief" Ever Following Election - What Happens Next?

Via Dana Lyons' Tumblr,

Stock market volatility expectations saw the biggest drop on record following the election.

In the buildup to the presidential election, we queried whether "Investors Were Over-Prepared For Election Volatility?". The reason behind that observation was that near-term (e.g., 9-Day) volatility expectations, via the VXST, had jumped to the 3rd highest level ever relative to the 1-Month VIX.

Crude is unimpressed as Bill O'Grady, chief market strategist at Confluence Investment Management in St. Louis, notes oil's two main market drivers are "Trumpenomics--dollar bullish and the fears that there will be no deal or the deal that comes is going to be so meaningless."
