*first, an important update on the weekly VIX chart

It is arguably most important to keep in mind that the 2013 VIX high was 21.91. A daily close in the 22s or higher this week will be a very important warning of much higher the months ahead.

As for TVIX/UVXY..and even the non-leveraged VXX, the higher VIX is going to further ramp these instruments in the days ahead.

Best guess..sp'1710/1690 within the next 3-7 trading days. That will probably equate to VIX 25..maybe 27.

From there...VIX will likely get re-crushed to the mid teens again..before the 'real fun' begins.
