OptionsExpiration

A big monthly expiration. A lot of old long Puts in VXX rolled off, but I was able to write against them one last time and recover the original cost yet again (more in fact) #VXXContango .
A big expiration in TNA and TQQQ (with the market really weak two of the last three weeks). Every short position in TNA expired(including the puts).

I will go into next week with almost no short options except short strangles in VXX and a few puts in SOXL and TQQQ.
