ISRG

Just announced 3 for 1 split for September. Should be a much better trading vehicle after that. It’s another position I’ve been working awhile to get back to even. Long stock covered with a 900 call and breakeven of 903. One more roll and she’ll be green finally.

GLD adjustment

#PerpetualRollingStrangles – Could Gartman be right? LOL…rolling out short calls and double selling puts until she turns around.

Rolled GLD SEP 15 2017 117.0 Calls to NOV 17 2017 118.0 Calls @ .21 credit

And:

Sold GLD SEP 1 2017 122.0 Puts @ 1.00

This was an additional sale of a full position. Still holding a full position of 121’s for next week with a stop on them at 50 percent of max gain.

SVXY

$SVXY rolled into the close Aug 18 75 put to Sep 15 72.50 put for a .50 credit.
No expirations.
Have a restful weekend.

#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Aug11 – It…

#OptionsExpiration #Weeklys #Aug11 – It was all about volatility this week.
Finally went long ‘some’ $SVXY against my short Jan 2018 and Jan 2019 Call positions
Dumped a small odd lot of $UVXY at the equivalent of 40 on a call assignment.

$VIX and VIX futures were down today and the S&P was up. If we don’t have war breakout over the weekend, the market should be strong on Monday.
