With UVXY             at 52-week lows, it may be worthwhile to consider whether going long via a short put spread could be productive; I have worked various set-ups with VXX             , but cannot get enough juice out of a play in light of the underlyings's low price. The drawback of UVXY             from an options standpoint, however, is that it is frequently "illiquid" (i.e., bid/ask spreads > .05), but I've found that doing "market discovery" is worthwhile, setting your fill price slightly above the mid, seeing if it fills, and then revising your price if it doesn't. Many an hour of mine has been wasted dicking around with "market discovery," but I can't stand paying more than a fair market price for something.

Here is one potential set-up: Aug 21 (34 DTE             ) 19/23 short put spread for 1.07 credit with a POP of 69%, BE at 21.93, max loss $293.00.

Naturally, we are in the off market, and the VIX             futures will in all likelihood move upon market open and into the New York             open ... . Additionally, from a premium selling standpoint, UVXY             is a bit unattractive ( IVR             currently at 29), but I generally play VIX             products (ironically) not for volatility, but for movement of price ... .
