Selling off some long Puts:

Sold to Close VXX1 Jun 18 2021 8.0 Puts Limit at $0.25. I’ve been in this lot almost a year and I’m selling 20% above my average cost.
This is only a tiny percentage of this long position as I was buying them as the long side on #VXXContango trades for many months.

Sold VXX1 Jun 18 2021 9.0 Puts Limit at $0.79, $0.84 & $0.90, with gains on all these trades.
Also only a portion of a bigger long.

VXX1 Puts Rolled down

Bought to close VXX1 May 21 2021 10.5 Puts at $0.36. Sold them on another rolldown last week at $0.48.

Replaced them with VXX1 May 28 2021 10.0 Puts at $0.38 for a small overall credit.
My long position is some old June 10.0 Puts so this is now a calendar spread.
