#ShortStrangles – 4 for 1 split on 7/20 and earnings not until August. Decent margin for this in a PM account so taking a shot.

Selling at 3 times the expected move to the upside.

Bought to Close UVXY1 Jun 18 2021 3.5 Covered Calls / Sold to Open UVXY1 Jun 25 2021 4.0 Calls at $0.13 Credit.
Like rolling a strike 35 call to a strike 40 for $1.30 credit for only one more week.

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX June 23rd 4155/4175-4185/4205 condors for 17.15, with SPX at 4180.
This is only 5 days out but high probability of success with current volatility.

Today’s looks good to expire with 20.00 credit. Wednesday’s expired badly as I had sold the put side on Monday for 6.00, so about a 9.00 loss on that one.

TQQQ,

No trades

Interactive Brokers had problems today so I couldn’t place any new combo orders. So no new trades, and I need a 10-point move down to close my spread with profit.

AMC Rollup

Bought to close AMC Jun 18 2021 48.0 Calls / Sold AMC Jun 25 2021 53.0 Calls at $0.05 Credit.

#BullPutSpreads – Thanks @Iceman for pointing this one out. Playing for a bounce with a very directional bull put spread. Selling a couple weeks before earnings also. Currently 40 percent off all time high with recent bad news about a lung cancer drug. Still seems to be some nice price targets on it even after the downgrades. I’ll manage it same way I do all of my aggressive directional bull put spreads.
