#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Dec30 – Getting…

#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Dec30 – Getting closer to cash on this last expiration cycle of 2016. With this expiration I’m selling ALL of my long SVXY position and replacing it with short SVXY Puts. I’ve been in this stock position from the mid-50s and the gain is long term.
We haven’t seen a correction since the election and I’m fairly confident we will see one pretty soon. But I’ve been wrong before.

Happy new year to everyone in the forums.
