    VXX 9/23/13

    No VXX. It defended 1700.

    Added to BIDU Dec deep ITM puts.

    Account nice plus with USO down and some of market shorts down. Most of positions just in waiting mode. Many of high flying names were not strong today. A couple of more days of weakness would be good to trim some of positions. USO broke down below 50MA, I hope the tide is finally turning for USO. Good to see both USO and market down.

      • That's an embarrasing question to a short seller on a year stocks going up like crazy.
        I'm glad that I didn't lose. I'm at a little over 3/4 of highest balance of year when S&P is a little over 1700.
        I guess I am lucky so far.
        With less greed and recklessness, I may have made much more. But then, without greed and recklessness, I may not even have made what I have made. I hope I improve my skills. I want to live off of market when I lose my job because I get older or if the company goes down, hopefully none of them happen in the next 10 years. I need to get my fund large enough before that so I can make enough consistently like fixed income just by selling weekly and/or LEAP options (without the need for share short [maybe except VXX] or option long).
