SPX trades

#SPXcampaign Sold some extra spreads. These each offset existing spreads in the same expiration to create iron condors:
Sold $SPX June 9th 2390/2365 put spreads for 2.25
Sold $SPX June 14th 2440/2465 call spreads for 2.90

Expiring today is the May 30th 2420/2395 put spread. With a close at 2414, the 2420 put will exercise for 6.00, which will debit from my account overnight. This spread was sold for 9.25 last Thursday, so approximately 3.25 profit.

/CL strangle

#Futures #ShortStrangles – Following hcgdavis into the oil fields…

SOLD /CL AUG 17 45/55 STRANGLE @ .83

Lunch time trades.

STO 6/23 TSO 81 puts at 1.04. Setting up 3-4 week ladder. This stock keeps its premiums about 1-4 weeks out when vol is low in overall market.

STO 7/7 WDC 84 puts at 0.97 adding a week to the ladder, this thing is in booster phase so following it up.

STO IRA 6/17 SXVY 130 puts at 1.22 following below with a slight tweak.

My /CL trade from late last week decayed $400 over the weekend. Will keep open another week or so then start managing. When the next series gets to 60 DTE will add another strangle.


Sold to open June 23rd 115 Put @ 1.50 when $SVXY was at 152.52
