    VXX 10/10/13

    Another Holy Cow!

    Thank God I have VXX shares short. Market drop is used to be big. These days, market tickles down and then shoots up/jumps big. VXX just doesn't give enough time to build shorts at the high.
    VXX short turns out to be great hedge for short at the market low, but not that great at market top.

    No trade today, just option rolling, and watching the move today from time to time while working busy to wrap up for vacation.

    Rolled USO puts and others to next week.

    Account not much minus thanks to VXX short, it's plus if USO excluded, on S&P 30+ up day. Some of shorts are even down today. The day before vacation is always hectic, wraping up/handing over project work, rolling and clearing positions, etc., etc. If possible, need to check market open just to see there's any position to close, hmm, smart phone trading would be handy for day like tomorrow but don't want to get it for just less than handful of days a year.
