    VXX 10/8/13

    Touching VXX in a while (though played XIV/SVXY).
    Restored 3/4 of VXX short position today.
    Sold 10 VXX Oct ATM calls.
    Sold 10 VXX Oct last week OTM calls.
    VXX options premiums are fat, though for good reason.

    Closed bunch of market shorts, some too early, some too late, some at the right time.
    Closed 2/3 of BIDU shares short.
    Closed all of MELI shares short.
    Closed remaining QIHU shares short.
    Closed all of Z shares short.
    Closed all of CMI shares short.
    Closed all of FDX shares short.

    Sold 10 OUTR deep ITM calls. A bit risky short.

    Yesterday, also sold BIDU weekly near-the-money calls.

    Account good plus. VXX may go up further but I need to start somewhere going back to net short. Have some protection up to VXX $19. In a better position now if the market bounces back.
