I missed this earlier, but I was filled on my bid to close out the strangle I sold on on 12/16.

I’m a little scared to go to the put side but the Feb 15’s are bringing about 75 cents. Awful tempting since they’d be margin free.
Just landed in Vail and talk about cold! About 10 below when we touched down. Burning the nat gas out here!!
Not doing much this week…everything looks great and theta doing it’s thing.
$GMCR @ShortPuts – Bought to close GMCR Jan 15 2016 50.0 Puts @ 0.01. Sold on 07/08/2015 @ 1.19.
Popped in to see how the world was shaping up. Decided to close my Dec 31st 48 Puts for 0.25. Originally sold Dec 16 for 1.40 and a bit of heat from GG for being early. I was early so I’m glad it has worked out well. Have a great New Year if I don’t pop back in later this week.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals VRX is down 9% because the CEO is on sick leave. This is why I don’t trade a single company. I am only trading Indexes
BTC $KOLD Jan 170 put for 22.60. Sold for 6.80 on 12/15
STO $KOLD May 320 calls (x3) for 9.40, highest available strike
#ContangoETFs First ZSL calls I’ve added in awhile, I haven’t been playing as much since the reverse split since so much attention has been on KOLD
STO $ZSL Jan 15th 65 calls for 1.60, adding to 70 and 72.5 calls
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Another low volume week… I’m watching for indications of what will happen in January, but not reading too much into minor moves this week. Will look to continue selling call spreads on rallies, but keeping put spreads few and close to expiration.
