SPX Chart and VIX Indicator have been updated

#SPXcampaign — it’s been awhile since I was able to catch up, but the chart is now up to date. Ask questions anytime.

Options Expiration

DKL probably get assigned on this one, didn’t follow the rules, STO DKL Aug 18 40 put @ 5.50 (ITM) Jul 31, share price at 35.54, knowing that earnings was coming on Aug 2, did I think it would hold…duh…it closed today at 30.00. I did want the stock for its .705 qtr div, however I should have looked more closely at volume/OI and ability to roll, I do have it at 34.50 cost basis but recovery on div alone will take 49.28571 quarters…not going there in years…just considering this a “legacy trade” for the grandkids.

TRTN might be assigned at cost basis of 33.18 closed at 33.65? Another one of my div keepers at .45 qtr.

Enjoy your weekend…

Jeff, thanks for the cool screensaver…

#OptionsExpiration #Aug18 #Monthlys – this…

#OptionsExpiration #Aug18 #Monthlys – this was a big one, with both volatility trades and individual put options coming due, with a scattering of covered calls mixed in.

The market decline, especially in the retailers and oil related stocks pushed some positions in the money and I’m committing some of my 90% cash position to add some long stock not that far from multi-year lows in those names.

I’ll be trading out of some on the next bounce or selling covered calls.
