Hope to collect the decay over the long weekend then roll them farther OTM. Small size on these.

May also close or roll the /ES strangle by Wed. Has already made the 40% in 1 week on decay so will probably roll to next 45 DTE as soon as they release (usually Thurs but suspect Wed. or Fri. this week).

My experiment with /ES is to try to take profits at a lower target but decrease holding time so I can turn it over faster. 25-35% every week would be a better return than waiting 3 weeks for 50% if I can do it 52 times a year.

Holding on SPY IC/credit spreads for another week or 2, premiums are low right now!

Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday! 🙂
