Lets take a look at the weekly VIX chart.

Since 2012 the VIX has been rejected at the weekly 200 SMA.  Never once making a weekly close above that line.  SPX went to new bull market highs from each of those lows.  The VIX was once again rejected at the 200 in early Feb. and SPX did indeed make new highs.  However, look at the VIX chart closely.  The 6 SMA is still above the 18.  This is the first time in this entire bull market that SPX made a new high with the VIX weekly chart crossed like that.  The closest to that was in July 2011 when SPX was making the right shoulder of the head and shoulders top it made that year. SPX made a lower high then crashed.  We can clearly see the VIX did not get down into the 12 range like it did on rallies over the last two years.  We have not had a very big VIX spike since 2011.  It may be time for another one.
