    • pinkusben: There is major buying of VIX OTM options therby distorting the price of futures therby affecting the value of SVXY

    • memshu: Ok, but backwardation lasted all 3 days, it's all contango again, what the?

    • pinkusben: contango is not magic, even in contango if the future price of front month AND outer month rise this must affect asset price of ETF

    • memshu: Ah yes... futures premium to spot higher across the board... why? Vix futures traders more bearish than s&p option traders? Why?

    • memshu: Either futures traders are more nervous than s+P option traders... or everyone is piling into vix etfs causing futures demand to rise?
