$SPX 1/9 2165/2190 BUPS @ 90% profit
$T Rolled 1/20 35 put to 1/20 42.50 put for added .60. Willing to add this decent yielding stock to my current full position of $T. Hopefully my $T will not runneth over.
When the market is like this and I’m making some decent cash, why do I focus on what I screwed up on? Thinking I should’ve done better…I gotta quit that!
Several have recently posted questions about how to trade options those members might checkout a new series of “WDIS: Where do I start?” on tastytrade.com called , “Options 101.” This series is going to start at the beginning with understanding the basics and continue through advanced options. It will be a long series so one might want to check TT’s progress then jump in at an appropriate skill level.
#VIXindicator Today we are hitting a place on the Indicator that is similar to Dec 5th, which you can see was right before another huge bullish pop. Provided no bad news smacks the market, we could see a very big run up on Friday, perhaps sparked by the Jobs Report.
