    Bought 10 Jan '15 UVXY puts today, or about a third of the position I want.

    Triple threat coming in the next two months:

    - Syria
    - Taper
    - Debt Ceiling

    It's about the worse time of the year to be short volatility.

    MI, I don't think an attack will happen tomorrow… it looks like this might take a few days…

    I expected the VIX to remain "elevated" all throughout.

    "We likely have only weeks -- perhaps a month or two -- until the next big dislocation hits"

    I love it when the guys that can read the future write their articles for SA.

    UVXY is a product which moves largely in reaction to news, emotions, sentiment. It is affected by events at home and abroad.

    Applying a rigid mathematical structure to predict a future price is therefore a project which will always have inherent and inextricable flaws.

    And Syria just threw all VIX and derivatives prediction out the window. Large end of day spike... could get out of control if missiles start to fly.

    This is why I short VIX derivatives, but hedge and I'm fully aware of the short term sharp spikes. It's not straight down.

    I wonder how many millions he lost... must be quite the sum.

    Hard to predict the unpredictable… such as the extent of the possible taper in Sept and the effects on the markets… especially with the uncertainty leading up to it.

    Ouch. Looking at the pre-market, you're already down by $4.00 per share approximately.

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Raising Cash To Increase Income [View article]
    Thanks, been selling options almost exclusively for 2 years, have doubled my portfolio twice since.

    As I said, ETrade requires 10% margin for the majority of options I sell. I have no reason to lie to you.
