Evening all. I’m finally getting to post after a crazy day. Contractors came in and demo’d the bath down to the studs with much violence and noise. I was out during the afternoon so missed an alert on my Mar 16th class credit spread.
BTO April 20th 2800/2810 for 4.05 with SPX @ 2759.39
Rolled my Short Mar 16th 2800 Call up to Mar 16th 2815 to form a BuCS with the long 2810 late in the afternoon with SPX @ 2777.80. This was an adjustment I made for the class trade. May not have been the best idea.
BTC the SPX Mar 16th 2365/2325 BuPS @ 0.10. Took this off incase the market reverses next week.
BTC SPXL Mar 16th 45 Put @ .60 off a GTC order. Originally opened at 1.25 on the 7th.
I have had a GTC order on my Mar 23rd 2870/2890 BeCS @ .10 that never got filled. It is back up to 1.10. Go figure.
Expired ERX Mar 09th 27.5 Thanks @hcgdavis
Hope everyone has or had a great weekend.

$SPX BTC 3/9 2775/2800 BUPS at 23.50. STO for 17.00

Calling an audible

#VIXIndicator. Based on this week’s action I’m going to cancel the Downside Warning. I believe we may also have entered an Upside Warning and I started trading it that way today. This is only a small tweak in the VIX Indicator, since this particular circumstance has only happened once before this week.

What is everyone using to…

What is everyone using to track transactions for tax purposes?

I use Excel, but find that entering hundreds of transactions is a tedious process.
Some transactions are capital gains. Others are deemed to be income, etc…
For active trading there has to be a better way.

How about you? Have you found a way that works and saves time?
