UVXY vs. VXX

The idea of the #VXXContango trades was that VXX was a wasting asset that was bound to lose value over time from the contango losses that happened when VIX futures contracts were rolled forward each month.

However, VXX appears to be broken due to Barclay’s having issued many more shares than they were allowed. As such, I’m switching this strategy over to UVXY as it tracks the VIX index more closely and has a more predictible contango loss.

My first trade in this name in a while:
Bought to Open UVXY Dec 16 2022 4.0 Puts at $0.17
Sold to Open UVXY Aug 12 2022 9.5 Puts at $0.20 for a $0.03 Credit for the first week.
Long DTE = 129
Short DTE = 3

Sold to Open VXX Aug 12 2022 23.0 Calls at $0.24 for a $0.02 Credit for the first week.
If the market makes it’s late week run higher like the last several week’s, the short will expire.

No VXX puts so far this week.

SPY Diagonal Puts

Haven’t traded SPY for a while. Since my positions in TQQQ and TNA are so damn strong I’m trying a bit of an offset

Sold to Open 1 SPY Aug 12 2022 401.0 Put at $0.84 for a $0.04 Credit for the first write.

Sold to Open 1 SPY Aug 10 2022 405.0 Put at $0.99 for a $0.06 Credit for the first write.

SPY

Seems like a logical place for SPY to stop for a while. But I’m often wrong 🙂
