    This account has been flailing lately - I think this is due to the historically low ^VIX price.

    My current holdings are:

    47 Shares of UVXY @ a cost of $10.70: -$50.04 unrealized loss
    23 Shares of XIV @ a cost of $81.46: +$40.63 unrealized gain
    79 Shares of VXX @ a cost of $12.69: +$2.76 unrealized gain

    Account is sitting @ $3,428.25 currently.

    This account utilizes some "high flyer" algorithms (3 to be exact) that trade volatility. There is obviously some conflict as it is long volatility in 2 of the 3 and inverse in the other 1. I will continue trading these strategies as they historically have ridiculous gains, but large drawdowns.

    sold 11 shares of SSO @ 93.44 - small gain

    bought 94 shares of VXX @ 11.01

    This algorithm is whipsawing due to the extremely low volatility

    A little early on the SPXS, but I think we start to see a pullback here.

    Looking to close KO once it is back to breakeven.

    late to this, but opened 6 calls of VXXB (since VXX is expiring at the end of January - for those that are not aware) 42.5 Feb 1 @ .90 this morning. Just sold half for 100% gain. Still holding SPXL short (in another account) and my 10 SPY puts - they are only up about 17%.
