Covered calls

#CoveredCallCampaign #CoveredCalls.
On Friday, closed $SQ Apr 27th 50 call for 1.77. Strike was breached, so I closed, and then stock dropped a lot more. Today, I sold Apr 27th 46 put for 1.20. Getting this roll in before earnings on May 2nd.

Today, closed $FB Apr 27th 175 call for 1.55. Sold for 1.60 on 3/29… I believe I sold this when earnings were expected to be around May 1. Now they are confirmed for Apr 25th, and I don’t want to be in its way.

STO 4 DTE FAS 62 put at 0.73. Will take assignment if below or roll if not.

VXX dump

#VXXGame Hard to keep ahead of short puts once the drop commences…

BTC $UVXY Apr 27 19 put for 3.45. Sold for 1.56 on Apr 3rd.
BTC $VXX Apr 27 44 put for 2.48. Sold for 1.15 on Apr 3rd.

Closed partial positions. Will close the remainder later, probably roll into short calls, which is the side that always works.

Also, earlier, closed UVXY March 18th 25 call for .54. Sold for 3.175 in March.

SPX calls sold

#SPXcampaign Sold $SPX May 17th 2810/2835 call spreads for 1.50.

SPX calls closed

Good morning!

#SPXcampaign. Closed on GTC order: $SPX Apr 27th 2800/2825 call spreads for .20. Sold for 1.50 on March 28th.

Volatility drop continues. I’m cautiously shifting to a bullish stance, but still need to break through SPX resistance.

Have a great day!

Out all day today but looks like a nice volatility drop to start the week. Wouldn’t have much to do anyway so going to the real job. Back in tomorrow.

Great trading everyone!
