There's an old saying with VIX: "When VIX is high it's time to buy, when VIX is low its time to go (or let go). REMEMBER this saying.
The VIX has been going down down down for the last few months and is near lows. Meanwhile the market is in need of a pullback in the next few weeks. So I picked up some VXX (which is an etf that trades w/vix) april 30 calls for 1.37.
