    Alright, lets dust this puppy off - I survived the volpocalypse unscathed. I re-wickered my algorithms to trade SVXY, then SVXY nerfed the leverage to .5. Therefore I have moved most of my algorithms to trade VXX as that was the "long version" of XIV. I have a couple sprinkled with SVXY as a "safer" play now that the leverage is .5 and a termination event is reduced due to this.

    Short 584 shares of VXX @ 51.01 at 10:00

    Will probably be stopped out after the tariff war continued after hours yesterday.
