Expired Full Loss

$SPX 2665/2686 BUCS I bought the monthlies which
expire in the AM while the weeklies (same date) expire
at days end thereby missing the 25 point increase in $SPX.
Another expensive lesson.
$SPX 2635/2660 BUPS Same problem These were AM expires.
I am going to get drunk.

Assigned
$SQ 38.5 put Basis 37.75
$MZOR 60 put Basis 58.20

Have a great weekend. Having the family over to decorate my tree.
Hope I can smile by then.

Expirations, have a nice weekend and hope for a 1% correction some day.

SPX final trades

#SPXcampaign Sold $SPX Dec 27th 2665/2640 put spreads for 4.60, as a #ReverseRoll from Dec 26th calls stopped earlier.

Closed Dec 22nd 2670/2695 call spreads for 11.60. Sold yesterday for 5.55.
#IBroll to Dec 29th 2665/2690/2690/2715 #IronButterfly. Shooting for ending the year at or near 2690, but either way I can roll as necessary.

No Expirations.
