This is not good. Vix going to 20 and we have a global 2008 meltdown again, with liquidity disappearing. It won't matter that VIX is 90, you won't be able to sell! 10/13/17

VIX shorts have been minting $ nearly all year. The inverse derivatives have been hitting new ATH's for days. I have been trying find less expensive ways to hedge SVXY at present gave up and put a wide stop loss on the OCT 72 calls. One day the VIX short trade will end badly but when??? 10/13/17
