    VXX 11/20/13

    Sold SVXY near-the-money calls. VXX was very strong in the morning so I thought something's going to happen, but as usual it faded very quicked, kept going down and never recovered even after market turned south.

    Shorted small # of PZZA shares.
    Small # of OUTR deep ITM calls assigned short again. Closed the short shares without selling deep ITM calls again. Will sell calls again if it goes higher up.

    USO is not going down more as I hoped. It rebounded a couple of times when it hit $35.50. Making me concerned whether that's the bottom. Will have to close soon unless it continues to go down.

    Account a little bit plus. Just hope S&P stays under 5MA daily.

    • Strong in the morning due to settlement. Although the VIX was below 14 for most of the last week, settlement was north of 14. Just shows you the games played with this index. Should have sold the VIX 14 puts for over a buck last week I guess. I think you'll likely get a similar setup as we move towards no-vol December. The period from December expiration until January could be fun again this year, however.
