    >13 today, please? I have the 10 - 13 call spread. Got it for $2.75 on Monday. Don't know if it's a sucker bet or not. Seems ok.

    IB is not showing anything for VRO.
    First VIX of the day was 13.45.
    My long calls aren't showing up in the option exercise screen so I'm a bit troubled. How is this supposed to work?

    Too early. Sometimes as late as 10:15am ET

    IB says "all in the money [VIX] options are automatically exercised by the OCC". That's rather nice of them.

    I got the call spread, -17 +15 today for 1.45.

    Thus looking for 16.45+ tomorrow, max profit at 17.00.

    What's interesting to me is that the trade appeared this AM. It wasn't there yesterday when I started looking.

    Last month, it was there on Monday.
