anyone notice vix 30c is 2.1 but vix is 32.8, why call has negative premium?
That's because options are not priced off the VIX, but VIX futures.
IB did not offer future vx?
I don't know, but my guess would be they do. It's beside the point though. VIX options are priced off VIX futures hence you cannot use the VIX index to determine the intrinsic value of a VIX option.
* Mods this clearly belongs in the Options forum, mind moving it there?
