Option trader Mark Sebastian, of OptionPit.com, reviews the recent price action of the SPY and the VIX, sees no reason to panic, and even suggests—if he were a betting man—that he’d say that the smart money was probably selling premium into this selloff.

As I review the movement in VIX relative to the SPY, I see no panic, in fact, if I were a betting man, I would say that the smart money was probably selling premium into this selloff. It could be because it was already hedged, who knows?
I think the market has a strong rebound in the next day or two.
