  • My Monday Flash Crash Trades

    I knew prices were great, driven by panic selling exacerbated by margin calls and liquidity squeeze.

    Unfortunately, it took me some time to liquidate some of my M&A arbitrage positions that were not losing or hedges like FXE that were gaining money to free some funds to purchase beaten-down SVXY which fell below 50.

    So my average purchase price was not below 50, but still pretty close. I was selling puts anyway, so the price depends on the bid-ask spread a lot.

  • I see liquidations of short $EUR and GBP positions but the money seems to be flowing to short YEN and CHF, so no end to long $USD trade

  • Futures up almost 1% after a surprise rate cut by India CB. China surprise rate cut came last year at the same level of S&P dipping below 2k
