Closing some DUST

Going through the end of day trade and just saw this order was filled.
Bought to close $DUST Nov 16 64 calls @ .20. Sold for 1.00-1.35 from 8/23-9/5. Position was getting a little big so I wanted to take some off to reduce size. I may do some more tomorrow if the opportunity presents itself.

WHR adding

Sold $WHR Jan 18 95 puts @ 1.25.
Divvy would be around 5% if the stock got down there.
I’m now short the following ladder:
Dec 110 puts
Dec 105 puts
Dec 100 puts
Jan 100 puts
Jan 95 puts


#LongCalls #LEAPS – Starter position out in 2021. Earnings still a few weeks away and leaving room to add. Always decent premium in this one.

Bought WYNN JAN 15 2021 130.0 Calls @ 26.85

Sold WYNN OCT 12 2018 130.0 Calls @ 1.48


#BearCallSpreads – Take your best shot Mr. Market…

Sold UVXY OCT 19 2018 40.0/45.0 Bear Call Spreads @ .55

Could this be the reason…

…for this afternoon’s drop? The Presidential test tweet caused the algos to freak out?

Afternoon dump

#Market We just hit the lowest $TICK since mid-May. It seems every day we start the day strong, and then hit volatility in the afternoon, before closing out on a mini-rally.

MSFT pre-earnings

Tomorrow is entry day for a 100% winning pre-ER trade in MSFT. The backtest is based on entering 21 days before earnings and closing the day of earnings before the pm report.



#ShortPuts #LongPuts #ShortCalls – Yes I am still in this. Short DITM puts out in Jan 2020. In the meantime trading around it. On the last spike bought a double size batch of disaster puts where the overall position would actually make more if the stock went to zero. With the stock making a big beautiful double bottom today I’m taking some nice gains on the long puts.

Sold to Close 10 AAOI JAN 17 2020 22.5 Puts @ 5.35 (bought for 2.35)

Taking some of those profits and buying shorter term disaster puts to get through next earnings and a possible confirmation of today’s bounce. I’ll decide what to do with these after earnings. Hopefully the stock will bounce and I can close these new ones for the residual value and maybe reload on the next top.

Bought to Open 10 AAOI JAN 18 2019 20.0 Puts @ 1.35

Pocketing the 1.65 gain for now which equates to a 3.30 basis improvement on the DITM puts.





#LongCalls #LEAPS – These were stuck in non-ratio’d limbo for a long time but finally looking better. Rolling the LEAPS out to 2021 for a small debit. Well worth the extra year of selling against them.

Rolled EWZ JAN 17 2020 40.0 Calls to JAN 15 2021 40.0 Calls @ 1.55 debit


Sold EWZ OCT 26 2018 40.0 Calls @ .63

FDX puts closed

#PostEarnings Bought to close $FDX Oct 12th 240 puts for 1.61. Sold for 2.90 on Sep 18th. This never got scary but was annoying.

BA and RTN

I decided to close out the long dated calls on BA and RTN since we have had a nice run.

BA, STC 2020, 370 call and BTC 10/19, 390 calls at 51.50, cost basis 43.67

RTN, STC 195 calls and BTC 10/5, 205 calls at 24.80, cost basis 20.92



AMZN #BuPS Decided to close…

AMZN #BuPS Decided to close my Oct 19th 1860 / 1840 BuPS @ 3.00 with AMZN at 1957.97 before things get worse. I may reopen this once AMZN finishes pulling back. Maybe closer to the 50dma.


#PerpetualRollingStrangles – Still plugging away on this one. Put side rolled out and down to 2020 and selling the weeklies against those. Been a nice solid performer considering it was an experiment started nearly 3 years ago…LOL

Bought to Close TLT OCT 5 2018 119.0 Calls @ .01 (sold for .43)
