#LongCalls #LEAPS – Unfortunately I’ve got to leave before the close so had to take care of these a little early. That was a good thing on some and not so good on others. Either way….rolling and selling.


Bought to Close AMAT SEP 28 2018 46.0 Calls @ .01 (sold for .44)


Overall profitable so far in spite of the selloff. Being careful with a whipsaw now.

Rolled AMBA SEP 14 2018 38.0 Calls to SEP 28 2018 39.0 Calls @ .15 credit


Trade repair I entered as a 1×1 LEAP position. Long up 85 points but blocked by weekly. Rolling both sides up for earnings to get the weekly more rollable for later. A big pullback would give me max profit. Slight overall debit will come out of weekly premium received so far.

Rolled AZO JAN 17 2020 640.0 Call to JAN 17 2020 690.0 Call @ 33.61 credit
Rolled AZO SEP 14 2018 670.0 Call to SEP 28 2018 710.0 Call @ 34.10 debit


Fairly new position non-ratio’d. Still using deltas for roll guidance and looking for the quick winner.

Rolled BABA SEP 14 2018 162.5 Calls to SEP 21 2018 165.0 Calls @ 1.21 credit


Long term that was a non ratio that got run over. Finally got it back to a partial ratio. Looking for break even and then out. Almost rid of most of these old ones that got run over and will look to replace on better entries next time.

Rolled DG SEP 14 2018 104.0 Calls to OCT 5 2018 105.0 Calls @ .19 debit


Ratio’d and coming along nicely.

Rolled ERX SEP 14 2018 34.0 Calls to ERX SEP 21 2018 34.5 Calls @ .34 credit


Treading carefully well below the LEAPS. Maybe I should sell these more aggressively to force a rally and help my ever expanding short DUST position…LOL

Sold GLD OCT 12 2018 115.5 Calls @ .41


An old one that hasn’t worked. Selling weekly to get as much back as I can with even being the goal here too. Just need one decent rally to get out before end of year. Replacing this week’s expiration.

Sold HIMX OCT 26 2018 6.5 Calls @ .22


Bought to Close LABU SEP 14 2018 98.0 Calls @ .05 (sold for 1.75)

Sold LABU SEP 28 2018 98.5 Calls @ 2.10


Long term that got run over but got it back to ratio’d. Starting to look better now. Market makers are not good in this one.

Rolled SMH SEP 14 2018 105.0 Calls to SEP 28 2018 106.5 Calls @ .12 credit


Same as BABA above. Fairly new position non-ratio’d. Still using deltas for roll guidance and looking for the quick winner. Replacing weeklies that filled yesterday for min value right at the close.

Sold XBI SEP 28 2018 97.5 Calls @ .80

Have a great weekend everyone!

Closing ROKU

Bought to close $ROKU Oct 19 55 puts @ .62. Sold for 1.77 on 9/5.

GOOGL rolling

BTC September 14, 1180/1160 bull put spread and rolled out to September 28, 1150/1130 bull put spread for a credit of 1.00 and I may need to roll these again and again. I should have taken my small loss early this morning.

MU pre-earnings speculation

#PreEarnings Taking a shot at $MU. Chips have been beaten up lately but starting to show support. MU is now bouncing off the consolidation area from early this year. Taking a slightly OTM long call. Even if earnings reaction next week is not stellar, stock will have until Oct 5th to reach the 47.00 break-even.

Bought to Open $MU Oct 5th 45 long calls for 2.02. Keep an eye out, you might get this cheaper if we drop more intraday.

Also long shares in a #PieTrade.


Reminder, this happens on Tuesday

#VXXGame $SVXY and $UVXY splits

Same old story…

Bonus day off, not getting…

Bonus day off, not getting hammered by the storm so time to trade then go bike or kite, might be too windy today 🙂

Still waiting on theta decay, next week a big expiration, this one mostly rolling and a few new trades.

TQQQ lot 1 rolled 64 cc rolled out 2 weeks for 0.8 credit. Cost basis now 63.20
TQQQ lot 2 rolled 65.5 cc out 2 weeks for 1.3 credit. Cb now 63.15
LNG lot 1 66.5cc rolled out a week to 66 for 0.73 credit. Cb 64.67
LNG lot 2 66.5 cc rolled out a week to 66 for 0.93 credit. Cb 64.72

#fuzzy new and adjustments/rolls
New XBI 80/97 2020 Leap and 14 DTE on the 97 for cost of 19.56
LNG 50/66.5 2020 LEAP and 14 DTE on the 66.5 for 19.25

XBI 87/95 and 95/95 2019 LEAPs rolled out to 21 DTE for 0.75 credits. Cost basis now 5.68 on the 87 and 2.2 on the 95. Getting close to a free trade on these.

Hope everyone in the path of the storm is safe and dry!

I now have about 4-6 weeks on the #fuzzy in the small accounts and have to say anything below 10k this is the way to go, even better than #pietrades. Over that you can do about the same with #fuzzy or #pietrades.

Going forward I will still be experimenting with the 45 DTE open 21 DTE close pie ladders (new hashtag maybe if it works) and will report as they roll/unwind. The TT segment that @thomberg1201 posted the other day added more evidence that may be the best way to income trade.

Hope everyone has a good weekend 🙂

Morning all. Popping in here…

Morning all. Popping in here from the “sunny” piedmont of NC in between power blips. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Rolled my ERX Sept 14th 35 Puts out and down to Sept 21st 34 P for .30 credit.
