BIDU earnings

Looking at 5 wide iron fly on 8 dollar move…

SBUX trade closed

#Earnings On Jan 26th, sold SBUX Jan 27th 58/60/62 #IronButterfly for 1.49, 6-lot. Next day, stock gapped down outside my profit zone, so I sold the long 58 puts for 1.83 and took assignment of the stock from the 60 puts. Waited out the stock’s dip down to 53.81, then sold stock on the rise up. Max profit possible was $866 (if it had pinned at 60 on 1/27); Final profit: $240.

Exiting $W earnings trade

#Earnings Yesterday, sold $W Feb 24th 35/40/45 #IronButterfly for 3.50

Today, bought to close 40 short calls for .35
bought one short put for 1.25,
bought the second short put at 1.00
bought the last one for .50.

Three-lot trade, total profit $670.00

$VIX $UVXY $SVXY

$VIX now negative on the day. Added a couple of additional short term positions after volatility dropped but still could get good premiums.
