This strategy goes out 30DTE, opens put contracts at 1 x -0.37,-2 x -0.30, -1 x -0.20, 2 x -0.10 for a net credit. Will close after 3 weeks or sooner if it hits $1 additional credit or 150% loss stop.

Still looking for a low maintenance strategy for my IRA account. This one is a little capital intense, but with low drawdown.

#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX Sep 10th 4525/4505 put spreads for 5.00. Leaving call spreads for more upside.

Made the mistake of getting spooked by yesterday’s drop, and did not sell this put side then. I should have heeded the Upside Warning and closed it. But hopefully we can revisit the highs around 4545 tomorrow.
