VIX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
The July VIX settlement came in at 14.43 today, just 0.01 points above yesterday's close, even as the S&P 500 has been in positive territory all morning.

That value equals the session high of the spot VIX, which is now at 14.33. The SPX is up 4.4 points above 1680. The CBOE Volatility Index and the SPX usually move inversely.

The August VIX futures are now the front-month contracts and are down 0.25 points to 15.95, while the September futures trade at 17.15. This has the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Note (VXX) down 1.3 percent to $17.18.
