  • antfarm: $SVXY #OptionExpiration April 21st 125 Puts Have a great weekend.
  • mikeo561: @Iceman $SVXY #SellingVerticalOptionSpreads -- Thanks Iceman. Trading these (volatility) is kind of scary, what will all of the "stuff" coming out of all the kooks (both domestic and international) out there these days. I'll try to be careful and stay out of the way of any downdrafts. Thanks again for your response.
  • Iceman: @mikeo561 #SellingVerticalOptionSpreads $SVXY - The sweet spot for Weekly Put sales in SVXY continues to be in the 75 to 85 strike price area. Selling too close in the 90-105 area could leave you exposed to a sudden downdraft in SVXY. It has moved 10 points lower in two days 2 or 3 times since late March.
  • champ: $SVXY @ $128 is also green and bounced about $5 off the low...@ $123.15.
  • Iceman: $UVXY $SVXY $VIX – volatility is rolling over as expected when the VIX was above the BB for 4 straight days. I got a few trades off.

  • Iceman: #OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Apr13 - A rather light week for expirations but very profitable. $SVXY and $UVXY weekly positions are all set up for the next 5-6 weeks, more $DUST Puts expired, and $NUGT stock was called away at a nice profit. The big Monthly expiration is next week plus earnings trades are on the horizon. -- Expirations -- DUST (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 22.5 Puts NUGT (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 8 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 80 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 85 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 105 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 110 Puts UVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 35 Calls UVXY (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 40 Calls -- Assignments -- NUGT (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 10 Calls (Covered) NUGT (Weekly) Apr 13 2017 10.5 Calls (Covered)

  • antfarm: $SVXY Bought to close April 07th 130 puts @ 0.20. Originally sold for 2.35. Taking risk off instead of allowing them to expire. Something just might go down the crapper this afternoon and It wouldn’t be worth the heart ache for 0.20. Off to walk the dog.
  • Iceman: $SVXY #ShortPuts - Bought to close SVXY APR 21 2017 65.0 Puts @ 0.01. They won't trade any lower and I'm out two weeks early. Sold 02/24/17 @ 0.87 Creating a little dry powder in case world events cause the VIX to spike again.
  • infocus: @antfarm $SVXY Smart move -risk management.
  • stocking: @champ $SVXY #Tax thank you for your reply. So, when you say it's all about end of year gains and losses, you mean I should just add up total debits and credits to get one balance for Svxy and not worry about putting the details of each purchase price?
  • champ: @stocking $SVXY #Tax --- Yes, but remember if you don't have or can not get the info, you have to summit an accurate log to the best of your ability.
  • Ron2: @stocking $SVXY #Tax ---To further complicate the issue, you should receive a K-1 from Pro Shares possibly showing gains or losses which will require an adjustment to the 1099 gain/loss to avoid potentially paying double tax. I have not found explicit instructions or examples of this adjustment for those doing their own taxes. Does anyone know where this can be found?
  • stocking: @Ron2 $SVXY #Tax thanks for your feedback. I downloaded the K1 through the Proshares website and forwarded it to my accountant. It has totals but still doesn't provide specific purchase prices and amounts and cost basis, etc. So it looks like both he brokers and the Proshares company expects the trader to fill in all the details
  • infocus: $SVXY STO 1 Sep 17 2017 90 Put @4.85
  • infocus: $SVXY STO 1 Sep 15 2017 90 Put @5.00
  • champ: @stocking #Tax - My guess is it's all about the end of the year gains or losses, on your end of year report and it happens to me every year on many ETF's but my CPA takes care of it every year, for years and I have never been called on the carpet. On the same ETF $SVXY. Need to talk to your CPA, not an accounted but only if you want ...I wound't. One year I just make up a log, to the best of my ability and when with it. Know one will even know or is the is wiser and just summit it to your CPA...without any comments and if you get call on it, not a big deal you just pay the tax. Sleep good because it's not a problem....because it's all about the end of the year. LOL

  • champ: @Robert1965 $TNA --- I got stop out at entry and had no time to follow up and my ....biggest mistake of the day was that I was looking at banks and missed $SVXY...I tried a couple of times but looked the wrong way and missed the main move...not happy about that because these type of trades are really money makers.....but thats all part of trading.

  • infocus: @GOOSE $UVXY Thanks for that "diagram". I'm moving in that direction, but I still own several other stocks. I do have 15 positions in $SVXY and $UVXY. Trying to spend less time in front of the computer, but it's hard to avoid. Your system sounds optimal as well as a good income producer. If only we could all be like The Iceman!

  • infocus: @stevef214 - Happy to help. I learned the most about trading $UVXY and $SVXY from the Goose and the Iceman, as well as several other people in OMM. Trade small in the beginning to get the hang of it. Good luck. Also, don't take a trade just because you see someone else posting it - check carefully first. I've made that mistake more than once ;>)
  • Aragorn: @infocus $UVXY $SVXY that is what makes XIV and UVXY such successful vehicles is that VXX designed to go to zero hence all the reverse splits. I think one will be coming again a lot faster than they expected. The price action this week was quite unusual. VXX continued to drop with the market which is not the usual way it trades.
  • infocus: @Aragorn $UVXY $SVXY I've been trading these vehicles for a couple of years, fairly successfully. The challenge for me is not to get too cocky. Usually sell options way out of the money, but once in a while I go overboard when it all looks great...then my emotions get the better of me and I "freak out". Not lately, but I still have to be careful. Watch out for the "greed trade". Yes, I've been wondering about when the next reverse split will be announced, too. Soon, is my guess.
  • GOOSE: @infocus $UVXY $SVXY If memory serves, when the price of $UVXY gets to ABOUT 7.0 it usually reverse splits.

  • Aragorn: $VXX $UVXY $SVXY - I have talked about these trades often here for a number of years. These Vix products are designed to decay to Zero hence all the reversals that have taken place. If you are Long VXX treat that only as a very short term trade. SVXY $XIV are the inverse so as the VXX goes down so XIV and SVXY will rise. If we have a sideways market at some point he VXX will continue its natural course downward and XIV and SVXY will reward you. These are not easy trades but over time VXX short or and inverse ETF is a potentially very profitable trade. You would expect that there might be some put protection going on now given the cheapness to buy it but again watch for sideways drift to upward movement in the indexes and the VXX will continue it's march downward

  • infocus: @mpsouth $UVXY Not necessarily. What I see is the opposite of the $SVXY which is strong and so far remains strong. If you haven't traded these ETFs before, I would advise watching them closely before you get involved. The premium gets sucked out quite rapidly as the expiration gets close. Paper trading is a good way to get the hang of it.
  • mpsouth: @infocus $UVXY $SVXY uvxy has sucked more life out of me than u can shake a stick at, well aware

  • Iceman: $SVXY $UVXY – so a big reversal from the best levels of the day. Since I was aggressive selling SVXY Puts and UVXY Calls into this morning’s move I threw out a couple of speculative positions to balance out the exposure (just a bit) Sold UVXY Feb 17 2017 20.0 Puts @ 0.47 (my order is already in to cover at a penny) Sold SVXY Feb 3 2017 122.0 Calls @ 1.00 (my order is already in to cover at a penny) – the strike is slightly above the alltime high set last Friday
  • Iceman: #OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Jan27 – a fairly quiet expiration except for some unfortunate early exercises on ITM $SVXY Calls. While Fido and Schwab have stock to lend, apparently TDAm does not. $NUGT and $DUST stayed in a predicable range for the 2nd week in a row and I re-acquired some $CVS at 79 after getting called out of my previous long stock at 82.5 on an early call assignment a little over a week ago. — Expirations — DUST (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 25 Puts DUST (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 30 Puts NUGT (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 8.5 Puts NUGT (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 12 Calls (Covered) SVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 60 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 65 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 70 Puts SVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 88 Puts TRIP (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 52.5 Calls (Covered) UVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 27 Calls (Covered) UVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 32 Calls (Covered) UVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 33 Calls (Covered) UVXY (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 40.5 Calls (Covered) — Assignments — CVS (Weekly) Jan 27 2017 79 Puts – going long some stock

The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the inverse (opposite) of the return of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures index for a single day. The index measures the movements of a combination of VIX futures and is designed to track changes in the expectation for one month in the future. The VIX is a commonly followed measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500 over the next 30 days. However, since VIX is not directly investable, exposure to equity volatility is often obtained though VIX futures. The VIX Fund intends to meet its investment objective by taking long or short positions in VIX futures contracts.
