SPX trades today

#SPXcampaign
#ITMrolls
Bought to close SPX March 10th 2360/2385 call spreads for 15.00
Sold to Open SPX March 24th 2370/2395 call spreads for 13.65

Bought to close SPX March 10th 2330/2355 call spreads for 23.00
Sold to Open SPXPM March 17th 2340/2365 call spreads for 20.00

I will add some additional smaller spreads on Monday to make up for the debits.

Also closed: SPX March 8th 2395/2420 call spreads for 1.50. Sold for 8.60 on Wednesday. This one is quite profitable in two days, but is exactly the type of spread that will go right back to even if we rally next week. 1.50 is much easier to roll than 8.50.

Finally,
BTC SPX March 16th 2255/2230 put spreads for .20. Sold for 1.45 on Feb 17th.
BTC SPX March 10th 2320/2295 put spreads for .20. Sold as part of #CondorRoll for 3.90 on Feb 22nd.

#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Mar03 – it…

#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Mar03 – it was almost all volatility plays for this week, as $SVXY and $UVXY did what was needed to allow every position to expire worthless.

$GDX and $NUGT showed extraordinary weakness despite only a modest pullback in #GOLD. I’m reestablishing a long position on some put assignments and will begin selling covered calls on Monday at strike prices above my cost.
