Long Put Diagonal futility

#VXXGame #LongPutDiagonals I’m starting to close down my ITM short puts against the Long-Put-Diagonals, without rolling them. I’ve kept up with rolling but it has become a futile exercise. I will consider new positions in either short calls or puts once we get some new volatility. But for now, I am shouldering the losses rather than building on them further.

The long term long puts are in great shape and should be ripe for closing about a year from now. That’s plenty of time to make up this month’s losses in additional short sales.

BTC $VXX Oct 20th 43 put for 8.44. Sold for 4.01 on 9/22 on a previous roll (with a 46.5 call for 1.44 that just closed for .03). That’s the basic deal; won’t be posting all trades to exit, but happy to answer any questions.
