#OptionsExpiration for Oct 20 Not…

#OptionsExpiration for Oct 20
Not many expirations this month–I’ve been much more aggressive taking positions off earlier with the market at these levels. I’ve been particularly focused on #VXXGame positions so I’m running out of them and itching to sell more. I won’t sing the same old song but What The World Needs Now Is Vol Sweet Vol….

Expiring:
$AMZN Oct 20 1020 calls
$CAT Oct 20 125 puts
$CMG Oct 20 275 puts
$IWM Oct 20 144 puts
$SNAP Oct 20 15 puts
$SVXY Oct 20 50 puts
$UVXY Oct 20 50 calls
$TEVA Oct 20 17.50 calls

Assignments:
$TEVA Oct 18.50 puts from an inverted strangle. I will reinitiate calls on this on Monday (provided the stock doesn’t tank in the am).

Have a great weekend.

TRTN

#OptionsExpiration
TRTN Oct 20 30 puts

#Assignment ?
“To be assigned, or not to be assigned” on TRTN Oct 20 40 put when stock closed at 39.95, cost basis 37.27? Probably find out tomorrow when settled, maybe…film at 11:00 😉

Have great weekends…

EDIT: Saturday, Oct 21, assigned 100 TRTN shares @ 39.95 on a 40 put…go figure?! Reached all time high of 40.50 Friday. Could be a run up to earnings on Nov 9 amc, TOS.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Oct20 – A…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Oct20 – A fairly big expiration as a whole bunch of Puts are expiring. The biggest are $GWW $MYL that have been weak for a long time but are acting better now. Some covered Calls expiring too.

Adding to some existing long stock positions at lower prices but I may be waiting for a while for them to recover. Will continue to sell covered calls on any rallies.

OptionsExpiration

$SVXY $50 puts
That’s it, very few open positions.

SVXY roll

#VXXGame Rolled these two from the ITM call I closed:
STO $SVXY Dec 15th 95 put for 5.25
STO $SVXY Jan 2019 205 call for 8.05 (highest strike)

NFLX earnings

#Earnings #IronButterfly BTC $NFLX Oct 20th 200 put for 5.80. Sold in the 190/200/210 Iron Butterfly for 8.18 on Monday. Plus I had a call butterfly that was a bust, so profit all together was a whopping 1.18!
