    VXX 10/7/13

    Closed all Oct SVXY OTM calls sold.
    Closed all Oct SVXY deep ITM calls sold.
    Closed 4K XIV shares short.
    All of them right before market close.

    I wanted to wait until VXX reaches the last high and VXX may shoot up further, but I just couldn't take this roller coaster anymore mentally, market sinking on open but climbing and climbing all day. So decided to close all SVXY/XIV shorts on weakness today.
    I've been VXX net long through XIV short and SVXY short for some time, but now I'm VXX net neutral.
    VXX going up further would be lovely, I can turn my positions into VXX net short at higher VXX price.

    Account again recovered Friday's loss and some more. On one more decent down day, I'll be trimming market shorts, none today. Just give me one more decent down day tomorrow, even just for an hour in the morning.
