REGN adjustment

Risk reduction while still bringing in more than the original strangle…

$UVXY #ShortCalls Bought to close…

$UVXY #ShortCalls Bought to close my March 10th 30 calls @ .03 from a GTC order. Originally entered @ 0.35.

/ES

#Futures – Re-establishing a slight short position for some protection. This won’t make much but it’s a safe starting point.

SOLD /ES @ 2374.50

and:

SOLD /ES MAR 17 2400 PUT @ 29.00

This gives a short basis of 2403.50 so if /ES finishes below 2400 position makes 3.50. If it finishes above 2400 It’ll be a great point to sell more puts. I’ll look out to the June contract after this one…

NXPI
