On a side note…played golf last Friday and cost myself 4 figures in my TSLA roll. Out on a weekend motorcycle ride starting yesterday and just missed selling EWZ 35 and 40 ITM puts for the inevitable recovery. I still refuse to watch the market every day…but I might start! LOL

Happy weekend!

YY roll

#Earnings #Rolling
BTC $YY June 8th 115 put for 5.25. Sold for 1.80 on Tuesday
Sold YY July 6th 110 put for 5.50. Moved down 5 points and got an extra .25.

Glad I wasn’t paying much attention on Tuesday or I probably would have sold more than one. I also got filled on a 110 for .85, trying to see if I can let that one expire.


Light day, rolled most of everything early in the week.

GM assigned yesterday at 37.5 CC. Cost basis was 37.72 but will take the small loss just to get out. $321 loss but was down 4 k at one point. Won’t #pietrade this again for a while.

AMAT pulled back a little so rolled the 50.5 cc to next week for 0.65 and dropped cost basis to 48.91. Have 1 other account still working back to even with cost basis of 52.39.

Everything else expires next week so will sit on my hands and let theta decay do it’s thing.

Have a great weekend!

Afternoon all. I set up…

Afternoon all. I set up my rolling orders this morning in case the boss finds things for me to do. First off. SIG #Shortputs Rolled my June 8th 54 Put out to June 15th 54 for 0.95 credit when SIG popped down to 54.83, dipping below WVAP around 11:25.

Jun 8 trades

Busy day here! Every single one of my #Saf-T trades is in the money for expiration, so I’m executing share calls and resets on them in multiple accounts.

LMT: I rolled into strength this morning, which means I rolled at the day’s high. This means that I didn’t collect a whole lot on the jun 8 calls ($222 of $1416) but I sold really high for next week, $2550 worth. If you recall, I’m now using LMT as a proxy to recover RTN losses (apples to apples in just one account). Last Friday the LMT-RTN was $-3858. Today it is $-3157. Gettin’ there.

My total premium sold for today was $14,894. It looks like I will collect $10,184 for a 68% retention.

I almost forgot my note-to-self about ETF divs next week and started a roll into next week. I quickly fixed that. All my SPY rolls are to Jun 13, the TQQQ rolls are to Jun 22, pretty far OTM.

Everyone have a fun and safe summer weekend! It’s been a great week for covered’s.

Oh…anyone in TWTR short calls….just keep an eye on extrinsic value, no action today necessary.

#spycampaign update from yesterday’s 2785/2795…

update from yesterday’s 2785/2795 June 08 BeCS – quite a scare early in day as price approached 2780. Luckily, in this case, prices reversed and I closed at an adequate profit: sold 1.80 buy 1.20, 0.95; also added 2780/2790, sold 2.55, 1.55 buy 1.80, 1.70 glad to get out on that last portion.
As prices dropped I added BuPS 2760/2750 sold 3.10, 1.45 buy 2.70, 1.35 again glad to get out even.
Anxious to see what today holds.
