With the drop yesterday can pretty much roll everything instead of letting call out or assign. Bad few weeks for MU and WDC down 11 and 14% respectively. They were converted to #fuzzies so a little easier to manage now but this is the only account showing a drop.
New trade STO SQ next week 70 put for 0.95.
MU 55 leap 50 call rolled a yesterday dropping cost basis to 11.26
WDC 60 leap 65 call rolled yesterday dropping cb to 18.01
EOG 115 put 36 DTE was challenged yesterday. Cost basis 113.2 if assigned.
This made me realize an easier way to manage deep ITM #pietrades is to convert it to a put leap #fuzzy. Takes out the margin requirement. If keeps dropping can manage it to a put diagonal. If reverses can either add a call side or keep rolling the put up. As you do that the margin requirement will increase but still much less than naked puts. If I had done this with MU and WDC instead of converting to the call side I would be making $ now. With any leap strategy, the short option strike is what determines the profit loss at the expiration of the short option. Going forward I think this will be my preferred strategy but only for deep ITM puts (5 points or more). Otherwise will manage as a regular weekly #pietrade.
SPX hedge rolled next week 2550 short put out to 15 DTE for 0.6 credit. Hedge only costs 1.2 now and if we head to 2550 will still make 12k. Hope I don’t need it. Next month will use back ratio or risk twist.
TQQQ batch 1 65 cc expires tomorrow rolled to next week for 0.9 credit. cb now 62.98.
TQQQ batch 2 65 cc expires tomorrow rolled to next week for 0.9 credit. Cb now 63.23
AMAT batch 1 47 cc rolled out 2 weeks for 0.33. Cb 48.91. Few more weeks to cover it.
AMAT batch 2 47 cc rolled out 2 weeks for 0.31 credit. Cb now 45.88 and if I can’t get more than 0.5 on next roll will let it assign and move to another #pietrade
#fuzzy XBI 87 and 95 leaps with rolled the 96 and 96.5 short calls down to 95 for 15 DTE for 1.1 and 10.6 credits. Cb now 7.52 and 4.04 as they were separate batches.
TOS calculates diagonals weird. They are all showing a loss on the graph but nearly 20% reduction in cost in 1 month so make sure you keep track of your cost basis. In the end that is all that really matters with any trade.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Not much to do until next week now. At least I tripled my theta decay with all the rolls.
