Hi all

For those affect by #SVXY#  last year, I was contacted by an attorney in NYC who is filing a class action suit.  If interested, here’s his contact info:

#SVXY For those who got…

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 SVXY has wiped out…

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.

#svxy WOW svxy is down…

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

#svxy Is today with vix…


Is today with vix at 12.93 and rising a good day to sell puts in this product?

#Shortputs Morning All. Back from…

#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 2 SVXY Jan 19 2018 130.0 Calls @ 38.80 – Originally sold at 7.90
Bought to close 2 SVXY Jan 19 2018 135.0 Calls @ 35.70 – Originally sold at 7.10
Bought to close 6 SVXY Sep 15 2017 165.0 Calls @ 13.40 – Originally sold at 13.43 (breakeven)
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.
