For those who got assigned SVXY at adjusted cost below $50, have you considered a trade like this?
-Sell the stock at market price
-Sell leap puts Jan 2020 at your adjusted cost strike, for example 50Put for $36.50
-Use the proceeds to buy 5 Jan 2020 leap calls at 15 for $6.00ea=$30
The rest of cash will go back into your account.
Since we already lost the money, selling this put would not create more loss.
If I understand this correctly, the B/E would occur when SVXY reaches about $26 at expiration or less if before expiration.
Main risk is that SVXY does not reach $26 by Jan 2020
Would something like this work?
SVXY has wiped out my trading account. I will be getting a margin call which I can’t cover. What happens now? (All the rest of my money is tied up in IRA or 401k.)
Thanks for any advice.
WOW svxy is down 75 point – I did not see this coming. With the boat weight so short volatility is there any expectation of a bounce tomorrow? I have 100, 90, 70, 60 put sitting out there. ouch. Thanks Laura
Is today with vix at 12.93 and rising a good day to sell puts in this product?
#Shortputs Morning All. Back from a very enjoyable hiatus with my daughter through the western side of Florida. I was assigned #SVXY at 85 back on Aug 11th. I covered it this morning @ 1.15. I’m still wrapping my head around my Aug 25th 80 and 75 Puts.
#SVXY #ShortPuts #ShortCalls – Margin issues are still pressuring me.

Bought to close 22 SVXY Jun 16 2017 55.0 Puts @ 0.11 – Originally sold at 3.55
A net overall loss but not as bad as yesterday.
If the stock keeps hanging around 150 I’ll be forced out of more positions in the next day or two.
