Q puts, VIX calls

Last week, I mentioned I had added some options to the portfolio:  I had picked up some Q Puts and a few VIX Calls.

The VIX options — May $12.50 Calls, purchased out of the money — are working out nicely. They are now in the money and still have plenty of time left in them. I expect to either keep them open for a while, and perhaps roll them out to a later month.

The May $43 QQQQ puts are also working out. These are more of a trade, and depending on how we progress, may get closed over the next few weeks. It really depends if this is a consolidation (probable) or something more untoward (possible).
