TSLA

Quote from ZeroHedge ….
If you, like us, are watching the insane meltup in TSLA which not only topped $1 trillion in market cap today, but has gained more than $140 billion since opening, a value that is almost as big as the market cap of GM and Ford, and is now rising by $1 billion every 5 seconds…

VXX1 Puts

Old pre-split contracts.
Sold my last lot of VXX1 Jan 21 2022 5.0 Puts at $0.67. Bought this lot on 03/16/21 at $0.16 and I wrote against them until September 2021 when the last logical write could be done.

I also have long 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 VXX1 puts for January 2022 but since they are effectively in the money, I’m more likely to exercise those as a way of dumping a good portion of my long VXX stock before year end.

At least that is the current plan.
