Well the market is down big....huge. After failing to bounce. Obviously, my arbitrage spx/spy options style is 100% neutral until the market hits a max profit on one of these positions. So basically the short puts are getting close, but not there yet.

Putting on Double Cross Currency Arbitrage Trade and SPY/SPX Positions
