    UUP touched resistance at 1st pivot 22.26, and bounced back down to close small red, Euro will strengthen following weeks, SPY to follow.

      : That was a long hold... at least you made money. I'm very hesitant to buy plainly puts... using spreads instead.

      : I think I´ll play only spreads too, got rid of SPY puts, TVIX, USO short call spreads, got in GLD 164/167 call spread & PPO call spreads.
