Tell me about it! I was on the phone with Ameritrade for 5 minutes trying to get shares of UVXY to short. When I came back, NFLX had jumped over $2, So I puked and dumped it all @ market and put all that money in VXX short.
They must have been pumping it on CNBC. Only thing I can think of. Dow popped up a bit also, so new shorts from today got squeezed and panic covered. Watch it crash back down now that I am out. That's one of the worst trades I ever made, and it just dropped $1 while I am typing this! Holy cr@p!
Luckily, I made an equal amount shorting UGAZ today so it comes out a wash.
Way short VXX now.
