Fractured Focus Today
I heard this is the best trading week since sometime in 2006? This is also the week 5 sheriff deputies were shot in my (almost) backyard. Fractured focus today as I left trading behind to try to honor the victim just a little. I’m happy to live in a community of many people who felt the same way.
I’ll post more tomorrow….especially about the power of unhedged Fuzzies. This morning, I found myself with $1.9M in SPY power, with only $63K at risk. Oh @fuzzballl You are like an onion of opportunity!

$UVXY #ShortCallSpread – Looking at this one as a starter. Comments welcome.
Buying Jan 18 2019 75.0 Calls/Selling Mar 16 2018 14 Calls at a small net credit.
Fixed risk so no margin Calls.
If the VIX takes off I would add new positions with the same long side but shorts either with higher strikes or with shorter terms.


Only 4 today but I have a big one on the 19th.
