Today was just supposed to be a snoozer. Then I got the We Put it to you email. Whatever. Handled. Then the bad news boys blew into town @ 10:00AM and the indexes faded:

and my account followed. Schwab does not have a charting tool to use for a screen grab of 1 days activity but lets just say it was nasty.

Day Change (all accounts): -$785,090.61 (-4.94%)

YIKES.

It was time to put the kicker shoes back on. All I did before 10:00AM was the MO Calls and then (WHY, I HAVE NO IDEA) Ok, I thought it might be fun to roll the UVXY Calls "down and in" since nothing was happening so they would expire sooner.. Sigh. Good thing things will calm down again soon I'm sure - right? Checked every position with even a hint of being exercised and kicked that sucker out of town - or at least out of sight. (ABBV, BX, CAT, UPS, ET, SCL, SKT, etc) UPS even got the boot twice!
