The VIX ended up BIG today settling above 21%. However I think the real story is not just how high VIX is, but how NOT high volatility has been. The spread is through the roof and I am not sure the lat time I saw something like this. It looks like the fiscal cliff at the end of 2013 on steroids
Today, we saw the market crush VIX...for a few hours. Then, SPX traders put a nice chunk of premiums right back into SPX options. Adjusted for the weekend, despite the shift in Brexit polling, VIX was down less than 2 points (a little over 1 raw).
