SPX puts sold

#SPXcampaign Sold to open $SPX 2205/2180 put spreads for 1.30, with SPX at 2297. Not usually selling put spreads on up days, but this fulfills my basic campaign strategy of 2 call spreads and 2 put spreads per week. Next week I’ll be selling the March 10th expiry.

$SVXY #ShortCalls – Bought to…

$SVXY #ShortCalls – Bought to close 1 SVXY Feb 3 120 Call @ 2 to avoid assignment. Originally sold @ 2.75.
This friggin’ stock rallies late in the day almost every Friday. Feels a bit like manipulation to me.

SPX roll

#SPXcampaign #Rolling a roll
Bought to close $SPX Feb 6th 2290 calls for 8.70. Sold as 2290/2315 call spreads for 4.10 on Wednesday. (saving the 2315 long calls for Monday in case we get a strong pop)

Sold to Open $SPX Feb 15th 2295/2320 call spreads for 9.00. Will roll this again off it is ATM or ITM next week (one week before expiration.

Busted earnings trades

#Earnings Well, this quarter has been quite dismal for #IronButterflies and #IronCondors. I’m taking losses on FOUR this week. Naked options or one-sided credit spreads, meanwhile, have all been winners. Even though these losses are small (by design), I’ll have to rethink this strategy; although one win can make up for several losses, it doesn’t matter much if no wins are to be had!

BTC ANTM Feb 3rd 155 calls for 4.20. Sold as part of IB for 3.75
BTC MRK Feb 3rd 62 calls for 1.97. Sold as part of IB for 1.19.

Also looking at max losses on AAPL (.66) and AMZN (3.90).

$NUGT #CoveredCalls #IRA – Repeating…

$NUGT #CoveredCalls #IRA – Repeating last weeks move while pushing up the strike price.
Normally I would let this week’s worthless option roll off and attempt to sell next week’s on Monday.
I’m spending a little to buy back worthless calls but who knows what Monday will bring.
Bought to close NUGT Feb 3 2017 12.0 Calls @ 0.02 (Sold @ 0.14)
Sold NUGT Feb 10 2017 12.5 Calls @ 0.32

TDA counter offer to tastyworks

Seems reasonable…

Hi Mr. Wyant,

I had forwarded your negotiated commissions request to the review team, and they have responded.

You currently have this commission schedule:
$7.95 Stock flat rate
$1.25 Option rate per contract, no base
$15.00 Exercise

What you requested would result in this:
$5.95 Stock flat rate
$1.00 Option Rate, no base, per trade, not per contract
$15.00 Exercise

I’m pretty much assuming that you prefer the second rate, but please respond back to me to confirm which rate you’d like to have.

I hope this is helpful, because we truly appreciate your business. If there’s anything else we can help you with, please reply to this message.

Thank you,

Nancy Lee

AMZN roll

#LongCallDiagonals – Still easing it up a little at a time…

Rolled this week’s 777.5 call to Feb 17 782.5 @ .34 debit

Taking advantage of the pullback and paying a small debit to pick up 5 points in the strike price.

This thing has to level off at some point where the rolls can catch up. In the meantime 2019 long call/Bups working nicely.
