LNKD getting slammed, which is why I didn’t trade it… DATA also taking a hit, hope it can stay above my 62 puts…


$STZ  Sold a Feb 140/135 BuPS @ 0.50 as @Forexpro described.  I was supposed to be away until mid March on a gig but the contracts just imploded.  Trying to get my head back around the market and this looked like a good place to start.
