  1. It sounds like it wasn’t easy to find the puts they sought, and that they had to put up with grief getting there, but when found, they were deliciously inexpensive. Very nice move. I like the added bit on Bloomberg that this was a long-term strategy / bet that paid off (and came as a surprise). Was the VIX short crowd limited to retail plungers?

    • I’m sure a few in the retail crowd made out. I’ve been buying VIX calls since last January. But this guy here, now that’s something special. Good for him.
