  • champ: $UVXY ----- I'm watching Oil and listening to CNBC for market direction....with this sure helps ....because they are both moving the markets around...mostly lower but with zig-zags.
  • champ: $UVXY ...Now news out of taking over.
  • champ: $UVXY --- News....Gary Cohn's said he's staying and that news is coming out of the WH but thats not good enough for CNBC.....everybody is going to jump ship....they were saying earlier.....this trade is still working off of News flow....for now...and is now HOD.
  • jwstich: @champ $UVXY thank you for posting. Trying to trade some $UVXY this morning for the first time. Just dipping my little toe.
  • champ: @jwstich $UVXY ---- Until you get used to this type of Trade....beginners should always go in small, its very can always add. Good Luck!
  • jwstich: @champ $UVXY will do.
  • champ: @jwstich $UVXY ---- Just a little tip about this trade, the trade moves with the markets but it is also a hedge....traders buy on what they think could happen....going forward but the #1 reasons is ....because the market are dropping and the further ...
  • jwstich: @champ $UVXY #1 #CopyCat #KnowOne Again thank you. Bought and sold position for a small profit. Sold way too early as it turns out but I am happy to have made a profit. Still in the learning curve. I always read your posts! John
  • champ: $UVXY HOD we go again on CNBC.....same thing CEO's again...pushed this ETF back to HOD and Oil is up.
  • bsafriet: @champ $UVXY missed the move -- I'll wait for the next bus. Watching $DRIP closely for exit. Is there a bear 3x ETF for the $XLE?
  • Junior1: @Iceman $UVXY #ShortCalls #TopOfTheChain May have to sell another Sep 91.0 as its over $3.00!
  • champ: $UVXY and $SDS both are HOD now....but expecting zig-zags ....still holding and #Oil was also @ HOD..
  • Junior1: @champ $UVXY $SDS Just got a fill higher than limit order... hmmm... usually troublesome
  • champ: @Junior1 $UVXY $SDS ----I just added @ $38.30 because I'm expecting another leg down, could drop another 100 points... going into the close ...but you never know, know one does and why would anyone buy...the world markets are #Not going to goes CNBC RNRN.
  • champ: $UVXY and $VXX ---- Both already have #Double volume RHRN and both are HOD again.....
  • GOOSE: A TRADE: Trying some new stock, as $UVXY has become too expensive to trade for me. $VXX STO 8/18/17 13.0 CALLS @.52 Just kanoodling for something to do. Expires tomorrow.
  • issues: @bsafriet $UVXY $DRIP $XLE Thanks for your note. I sold most of my oils $XLE $XOP $OKE and trans $XTN all at small losses. I kept $MTDR since it hasn't gone down as much.
  • mharps: @champ $UVXY $VXX #Double -I have a nice profit in VXX- ur holding into tomorrow ?
  • champ: @mharps $UVXY $VXX #Double ---- All depends on how it plays out going into the close....however, I might hold 30% of $UVXY and 1/2 of $ we are getting the next leg... that I posted about ....have to see what happens....but it might turn up a little RHRN....??.
  • mharps: @mharps $UVXY $VXX #Double Couldn't wait-took the bird in the hand
  • champ: $UVXY WOW...many are taking hedging positions now......
  • champ: $UVXY ...this trade will move into the AH'S ....
  • champ: $UVXY.....OUT.....all
  • Robert1965: @champ $UVXY Nice call today, especially in at 38.30
  • champ: $UVXY close up about I took the $$$$$...$SDS...Out also....because I'm now expecting a bounce in the morning and then the markets could reason was because of what Art Cashin said on CNBC today.....but the markets could go either way in the morning....IMO....and I have #KnowClue. Theirs really no real reason to swing.... after this great move. I can always buy in the AH's....but I need to see whats going on with stocks in the AH's and $UVXY is now to the GYM and if I make any buys after I get back, before the AH's close, I will post. The markets did have another leg down of 90 points, after my post going into the close that I was expecting. I did not sell any investment positions today, but I did take profits on $LOW.
  • champ: @Robert1965 $UVXY --- Thanks, but that add on was not all that hard because I had room because I was only risking first buy @ $31.70 this morning was the hard buy... this morning because I when in with size..... and I did that because I had booked very large profits, from last week... with those three trades that I posted about from the week before and I did post a #ReCap over the weekend, on one of those trades. If anyone is interested....just saying.

  • Iceman: ...
    Dumped a small odd lot of $UVXY at the equivalent of 40 on a call assignment.

    $VIX and VIX futures were down today and the S&P was up. If we don't have war breakout over the weekend, the market should be strong on Monday.

  • champ: $SDS $UVXY $SQQQ....I'm holding all 3 of these hedges and I'm just waiting and real clue on if the markets are going to drop any further but so far this drop is really no big deal....with the $DJI at 21,909 at this point...but anything can happen and I'm kind of watching $APPL $AMZN and $GOOG for direction. WTI-Oil is now dropping and is now down a $1 off the was over $50 this morning @ $ oil is not helping the markets
  • champ: $UVXY HOD now up around 22% for now but expecting zig-zag....with all my hedges
  • bigbartabs: @champ $SDS $UVXY $SQQQ $DJI $APPL $AMZN $GOOG .... I wonder how North Korea's stock market is doing... if they have one. Could probably get in at an all time low.
  • champ: @bigbartabs $SDS $UVXY $SQQQ $DJI $APPL $AMZN $GOOG ---- P Trump needs to go over RHRN and make a deal on a Hotel and Golf Course, that would probably solve this problem.....I'm going to send him an eMail.

  • GOOSE: TRADES: $SNAP is my new $UVXY. i get more bang for my buck, now that they increased the margin requirement on $UVXY. $SNAP STO 8/11/17 15.5 CALLS @.37 $SNAP STO 8/11/17 15.0 CALLS @.49
  • Junior1: @GOOSE $SNAP $UVXY Can I ask you... what is the advantage of "ladders"? I see a disadvantage of them: requiring more transactions (time and commissions)
  • champ: $DJI $SPX -- $VXX $UVXY ---- It appears that traders/investors are hanging on to both of these swing long positions, as a "Hedge" to help mitigate any potential losses, as the market, tries to find direction....I'm still holding both for n ...

  • GOOSE: #Computer $UVXY Hi all, Computer went down yesterday, got it back this morning, and my account was messed up, so I thought. When I called Interactive about it, they said they increased the Margin Requirement for $UVXY to 80%. Did other brokers do this too? Hmmm.
  • GOOSE: A TRADE: $SNAP STO 8/11/17 14.5 CALLS @.50 Speculative. BTC bunch of $UVXY Short Calls to raise margin balance; $UVXY's Margin Requirement raised to 80%, wiping out my buying power. $50 credit, in that buy/sell transaction, upon reflection, not really worth it.
  • champ: $VXX $SDS and the 3 x"s ETF..$UVXY on that drop .....

  • brucec: @infocus $UVXY Thanks!
  • infocus: @GOOSE $SNAP Just back from lunch. Stopped out on the $SNAP short calls. Happy to be rid of it, particularly after I saw today's action. Could have been ugly but was just a mosquito bite. TRADES: $SNAP BTC Aug 11 2017 13.50 Calls @.76 (STO @.43) $UVXY BTC Aug 4 2017 37 Calls @ .01 Trading account making another high for the year today while taking lots of risk off the table. Hope you're doing well, GOOSIE
  • roadrunr: $UVXY Rolled Aug 04 $30 call to Aug 11 $30 call for $1 cr.
  • GOOSE: @roadrunr $UVXY Hi, I STO a 8/11/17 30.0 Call earlier for 1.30. I am just testing an idea. GL with your trade, and have a Great weekend.
  • GOOSE: TRADES: $UVXY BTC 8/4/17 35.0 CALLS @.08 To raise some $ for another trade. See below. $SNAP STO 8/11/17 13.0 CALLS @.50 Has a terrible Daily chart, and a worser, ;>), Weekly chart. On the weekly, it looks like water coming out of a hose, off the lower BB.
  • infocus: $UVXY Adding to position: STO Sep 1 2017 60 Calls @.77 Delta: .13 with 4 weeks to expiration.
  • Iceman: $UVXY #ShortCalls #VXXGame – Sold UVXY Aug 4 2017 36 Calls @ 0.28 with the stock at 29.97. 20% OTM and expires Friday

  • roadrunr: $UVXY STO Aug 04 $30 call for 0.75
