    Sep $15 calls sold for $6.10 and puts for $6


    you could buy UVXY and sell both for $12. but buy two cheap $10 pust...technical issue

    I said this before when UVXY was $27.50, $20, $17.6, etc...it's a pure % play

    giveaway is $15 + 10 = $25...$2 for buying two SEp $10 puts...this is a MUST technical issue

    put is fully HEDGED...UVXY is hedged at $10

    • watsituyah -

      thanks for the perspective on this, I also did notice that the spread on these is huge like $100 so that would be also a factor.

      I did not realize that the vxx has weekly options, i will look into those as pure gamble if u will.

    • You're welcome for the new moniker. And thank you for acknowledging your initial response was in error and that you were in total agreement with what I had written. Or at least I am assuming your faure to respond was an indirect and passive admission of error.

      And hypothetically, I will sell you my shares if TVIX reaches that 52 week high tomorrow to pad your position. And then I will offerore shares for you to buy that I will be selliing short at said 52 week highs.

    • Oh and RockyGravedigger.

      I LIKES IT!

      The Gravedigger is my boy's favorite MonsterTruck


    • Already sitting in the back of the class. That's where I can cop a feel away from prying eyes whilst keepin' my back to the wall. Best seat in the house.

      Here's a hypothetical for ya, If I buy one million shares of TVIX tomorrow and it goes on and tests it's 52 week high in the afternoon I will profit over 100 million dollars.

      Purely hypothetical

      How'd I do Teach?

    • For clarity, the post above is directed at rockygravedigger.

    • I live on a planet where people actually have read all the messages in a string to understand the context of the message to which they are apparently replying. I guess I should have stated, " In hypothetical response to your hypothetical scenarios, kferbeta, ..."(see above). However, you come from a planet where the concept of context is beyond your grasp. Now that you are hopefully aware of the gist of the response, please try to point out one thing that is incorrect or inaccurate about my hypothetical response to a hypothetical scenario. You can't. Now please take your seat at the back of the class and try to pay better attention so you can at least attempt to learn something about options.

    • UVXY to 21 in two days? I must respectfully ask which planet it is on which you live?

      Because it is not Earth. Here we have gravity and it is firmly in grasp of volatility

      At least for the next two days. Two months from now? Who knows, but it will take Global Thermonuclear War and nothing less. And that is entirely possible but good luck getting our money out of our accts.

    • As a follow-up: Personally, I would not mess with the UVXY options. Since they are so new (just started being able to trade options in it about 3 weeks ago), the options are very thinly traded with virtually no open interest and no volume. So they are not very liquid and I would not recommend them myself. That's just one more reason VXX, weekly's and standard, would be a better choice, again just my opinion.

    • sep $7.50 puts for $1.15

      I suggested this last year with AAPL when AAPL was at $347 ...when it runs,,you buy back the puts, WHen it falls you buy back the calls...over and over again...

      Another way to play this see-saw...
