btw, I sent you here because I shorted this a few weeks ago over 100 and it dropped 30% for me. also, shorting dust was a fantastic move around that time. at the end of june, all of the metal got raped, which is when you want to trade things, be patient and opportunities present themselves. I got short uvxy, and expect some retracement, but the sp500 is going down until after labor day when the govt goes back to destruction of the market. wait for a spike in the futures and short uvxy heavy. I can tell you when I am going heavy.
alright, so what's going on with you? did you get destroyed on aapl options last month? you always bet small on options...always! they'll wipe you out. options are a really dumb play in fact because of the time and risk premium built into them, but when you have a strong feeling one way or the other, like when aapl gets oversold or overbought close to an expiration, then you play it small. otherwise I don't trade options. did you short uvxy when it got into the 80's? you have to balance risk and reward when you trade. how can I help you other than maybe posting the principles I trade with?
