SPX puts

#SPXcampaign I sold one more put spread, but now not liking how we closed. Hoping for another push UP this week and a chance to start adding call spreads and even myself out. We may be topping out, but if they do manage to pass tax bill we could see another push up.

Sold $SPX Dec 18th 2660/2635 put spreads for 3.65.

Day Done

Here’s the rest of my trades today:
1. I used the AS-BB indicator to scalp /ES, /NQ, /YM multiple times today, for a net of $625 and no losses. I trade futures really teensy, but love this indicator for keeping me in when I would normally bail.
2 ETFC closed the contrarian short for the green-side-of-scratch
3. DLTR same as ETFC
4. SPX #FuzzyBear I’m kind of running in place with this trade on. I’m making nice money on other positions which are financing the move against me with this position. I’m using the AS-BB indicator to leg in/out on the short put hedge, which got me an extra $300 today in debit reduction. As mentioned before I took off 1 of 10 of my short calls in the synthetic to give me some allowance to the upside. I’m at about -120 deltas. Trying really hard to not over-correct on this.
5. AAPL closed my defended put spread that didn’t need defending. 1/2 of max loss, -$225.00

Profitable open positions: ABBV, ADSK, AFL, CELG, DHI, FLIR, JPM (really smart that I rolled this fuzzy yesterday), LMT, MNST, MSFT, NTNX (picked up 400 shares yesterday), NUE, QQQ, RCII, SPX (bitty, not fuzzy), SPY, TXN
Losing open positions: AOBC, COT, DWDP, LKQ, MU, SHAK, ULTA, SPX Fuzzy

Trying to slow it down now for the rest of the year, only take new positions if really compelling.

#ShortStrangles – Short term but aggressive. Counting on the 100ma and the all time highs to contain this. This is also a couple weeks before next earnings…
