UVXY puts

#VXXGame Sold $UVXY Sep 8th 28 puts for 1.10. Very possibly will be breached, but easy to roll.

Plus, cleared a few positions with profits to keep my short volatility volume controllable should things get uglier:
Closed $SVXY Sep 15th 50 put for 1.50. Sold as part of the 100/180 strangles for 18.95 in March.
Closed $SVXY Sep 15th 52 put for 1.65. Sold for 1.90 on 8/10

Decision time approaching today – take assignment at 81 or realize loss of $11+. I think it will reverse slowly, once it settles at a bottom. The bubble has burst and a snap-back recovery, without tax reform, seems unlikely. Too many variables – I hope I’m not missing any?

SVXY calls closed

#VXXGame Closed $SVXY Sept 15th 90 call for .40. This is the last call I had from the 100/180 strangles I sold for 18.95 back in March. I have one SVXY put remaining. That was sold as a roll, and I got out of most of it at decent prices. But I also rolled some into Sep 15th 77.5 puts, now underwater. #Rolling never ends!
