TVIX up 95 % while UVXY 55 % at some point during the puke. Now there was a pairtrade opportunity (if one could locate the shares, that is)

Just one other note. While it has been very very hard to be short delta, but if you were Vega or volatility your best hedge is short delta.

Awesome video. Lol

One clarification, if you are gonna be short Vega you need to be short delta against it.

Good luck all trading.

XIV....had to check twice, trading at $10 in af. Some accounts(real) will will be cleaned out. Hope Kevin didn't get hurt too badly.
Something I notice here for years, very few traders not using stop/loss. This is the kinda thing that will wipe you out....glty

Any one who lost or got burned in XIV should have got out before it crashed . People are just greedy I sad to say.

I kept checking support levels and it kept blowing through them.

Credit Suisse lost over $550 Million on XIV in less than 24 hours. Credit Suisse cannot even afford to buy that green chair and hula hoop yogi the bear is playing with in the video.
