Today was the first day VIX H contract trading as the front month. There was a lot of pressure to push up VIX today.

The word in the pit was that there was a large call buyer in VIX betting on a rise to 16 by March.

The front Vix calendar hit a high of 1.94 on Monday and has since been going down, closing at 1.22 today.
