VIX and More Fear Poll
For a long time I have thought about the usefulness of having a poll in which investors identify which geopolitical, macroeconomic, technical, etc. issues make them the most fearful, anxious or uncertain about the future of the stock market.

Today marks the first of a new weekly "VIX and More Fear Poll" in which I intend to collect this data, share the findings and discuss some of the trends over time, including how the ebbs and flows of various issues may coincide with the ebbs and flows of the VIX.

Note that while I have selected six issues of concern, readers are free to flag additional issues in the Other box at the bottom -- and I will use this input to help structure the responses in previous weeks.

This poll will close on 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (PT) and I hope to have a post up discussing the results within the hour.

Which of the following makes you most fearful, anxious or uncertain about the stock market?
