Happy Thanksgiving!

Have not posted in a long time but still follow along.
@jeffcp66 thanks for the upside warning today, hope it holds 🙂

Have been busy trading and developing and launching several services through Traders Reserve and also working on the quantitative analysis stuff. Along with that we have been working on several new tactics that help handle market volatility and optimizing existing tactics (a lot of the same stuff people do here) using the AI. But tough market this year. Hopefully next year normalizes some. Positive for the year but only by about 36% this year which is about a third to half of our normal returns. Anything positive this year is a check in the win column!

Cheers, Chris

SPX, iron condor,

I sold the put side of the November 23, 3880/3900 at .15 cents for tomorrow. I am going to wait until tomorrow to add the call side since we are above the 4,000 level and could run a bit from here.

Downside Warning canceled

#VIXIndicator $VIX closes at 22.36, ending the Downside Warning that started on Sept 22. If we get two more days closing under 22.50, it will mean an Upside Warning. Not surprising as Thanksgiving week is usually mildly bullish. And $SPX was actually down on the day… but volatility dropped steadily.
