VXX Puts

Jan 21st is fast approaching.
I have some VXX1 long puts that are deep in-the-money but VXX could go much lower by expiration day.

Sold VXX Jan 21 2022 16.5 Puts at $0.14, $0.15 and $0.17

A huge win as I let all my VXX stock get called away last week and had to roll deep ITM calls forward a week for a bit of additional premium.
Bought to close VXX Dec 10 2021 21.5 Calls at $0.01.
Sold these last Friday at $6.70.
I am letting even bigger positions in short VXX calls and bear call spreads expire at 22.50, 23.0 and 27.0
#VXXContango

VXX1

I have a bunch of old pre-split VXX long puts. They are all in the money but don’t expire until Jan 2022 and Jun 2022.
Scalping a bit of premium for the next week because there are contracts for Dec 17th and there is no margin requirement to sell these.

VXX1 Puts

Old pre-split contracts.
Sold my last lot of VXX1 Jan 21 2022 5.0 Puts at $0.67. Bought this lot on 03/16/21 at $0.16 and I wrote against them until September 2021 when the last logical write could be done.

I also have long 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 VXX1 puts for January 2022 but since they are effectively in the money, I’m more likely to exercise those as a way of dumping a good portion of my long VXX stock before year end.

At least that is the current plan.
