VIX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
The June VIX futures settled this morning at 11.74, and that is the price that any remaining June options will be based on.

That is right in line with where the spot volatility index is now, at 11.73, down 0.33 points. That comes with the S&P 500 up more than 2 points to 1944.

The July VIX futures are now front month and trade at 13.20, down 0.25 points. The August futures are off 0.20 points to 14.10. With that the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Note (VXX) is down 1 percent to $30.36.

The nine-day CBOE Short-Term Volatility Index (VXST) is down 0.1 to 12.58, remaining above the VIX. As I noted earlier, it is very odd to see the VXST above the VIX in a rising equity market.
