These trades got executed right before the close.
I have a few deep in the money positions for Feb that I decided to roll today. There’s no real time value left and I didn’t want to get assigned short on a hard to borrow underlying and have to deal with a forced buy-in. So I rolled 3 Feb positions out to May:
Rolled Feb 118 call out to May for 4.07 credit
– BTC Feb 118 call @ 57.19. Sold for 99.65 (part of a previous rollout) on 12/16.
– STO May 118 call @ 61.26
Reduced my loss in this position: booked profit of 42.46; had 86.14 loss to recover, 43.68 remaining
Rolled Feb 115 call out to May for 3.46 credit
– BTC Feb 115 call @ 60.03. Sold for 102.13 (part of a previous rollout) on 12/16
– STO May 115 call @ 63.49
Reduced my loss in this position: booked profit of 42.10; had 95.60 loss to recover, 53.50 remaining
Rolled Feb 110 call out to May for 2.51 credit
– BTC Feb 110 call @ 65.45. Sold for 18.20 on 10/22
– STO May 110 call @ 67.96
Booked a loss on this roll of 47.25
If natural gas does not recover sufficiently (bringing KOLD back down) then I’ll continue to roll and generate credits until I have wiped out all the accumulated losses. Even without a whole lot of long term movement in the underlying commodity, KOLD will always suffer from tracking error headwinds, being a reverse-leveraged ETF, so it will always have that downward bias. So I got that going for me. Which is nice.
