  1. Anyone know why VIX Calls shed so much weight today? I'm not familiar and was just looking today and see that the Calls lost quite a large percentage while the VIX went up .54 to 13.30.

    Cheers and thanks. :) :D
  2. Vix options are settled against VIX futures AFAIK and the VIX we see quoted in articles and our quote screens is a cash quote. Forward IV is often priced different from cash IV.
