Market starting to move a little, 9 points /es after hours. Keep some cash handy, might have some trades tomorrow.

I am looking at /es strangle at 2345 and 2565 but probably wait until the morning to see what the open brings. Plus will have some more cash tomorrow from a transfer and rolling positions will give me some extra cushion.

SPX trades

#SPXcampaign Closed $SPX Sep 22nd 2205/2480 put spreads for 4.70. Sold yesterday for 4.90. As we head into the close, we’re looking pretty weak, so can’t risk an overnight gap down. This was only a hedge against the short 2505 call spread, which I closed this morning.

Also, sold to open Oct 4th 2470/2495 call spreads as an #ITMroll from spread stopped yesterday. I was unable to move short strike up.

$AGN #FallingKnife
Sold $AGN Jan 19 2018 160 puts @ 1.50 with the stock at 203.58. Stock hasn’t been at the strike price in nearly 4 years (Jan 2014).

$VXX

STC 9/22 $42.5 puts @ $1.69
STC 9/29 $44 puts @ $3.60

Made some gas money. I’m going to be away from the market fishing tomorrow so was only going to hold these as long as $VXX was dropping. Was hoping for more of a drop this morning, but that didn’t happen, so I’m out.
