Hey Gang, back from sunny Puerto Rico. Spending the day getting caught up at work and with the market. Looking for some opportunities. Hope you guy’s had a great trading week last week.

FSLR earnings

#Earnings – Trying something for fun…even if it implodes I’ll get the stock at a decent basis to sell covered calls. If it works, it’s a big juicy winner. Playing it directionally to the upside needing half the expected move.

$UVXY Please excuse my ignorance….

$UVXY Please excuse my ignorance. I was trolling around wanting to validate my belief that $UVXY short calls require 50% of the strike value in margin. I can only sell calls in one account and it is of the smallish type. Don’t want to end up exceeding my welcome. Thanks team.

Earnings possibilities?

Looking at FSLR and MBLY so far….

GOOGL roll

#LongCallDiagonals – Making some bigger adjustments in these trades…letting the leash out a little with it on a big run…

Rolled Mar 3rd 825.0 call to Apr 21st 840.0 @ .85 credit

Picking up 15 points and bringing in a little scratch…

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

AMZN roll

#LongCallDiagonals – Making some bigger adjustments in these trades…letting the leash out a little with it on a big run…

Rolled Mar 10th 785.0 call to May 19th 810.0 @ 3.00 debit

Don’t mind spending 3 bucks to pick up 25 points considering the front month calls have brought in 45 points since the beginning of the trade…

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