#ShortPuts Rolled Sept 29th 65 Put out and up to Oct 20th 75 Put for 2.35 credit. This is a single contract in my Roth and the highest strike in my Oct ladder so I’m comfortable with raising the strike.

Upside Warning

#VIXIndicator We are heading into an upside warning with a third consecutive close below 9.96. This signal rarely is false.; while recent Downside warnings have often been head fakes, the Upsides have been good for at least a small rally before stopping, which in this case would mean 10-30 points higher on SPX next week. Hard to believe that will happen with the recent range-bound, dull movement. And weekend news could derail it as well.
