Just remember, the bond market opens tomorrow and if rates are higher this may be only a dead cat bounce.

PYPL

#LongCalls #LEAPS – Weekly hedges just about out of juice and earnings next week. I’d prefer a bounce before selling anything but just in case throwing on a 30 percent size sale for next week anyway. I’ll add a little more if we get a bounce into the announcement.

Sold PYPL OCT 19 2018 85.0 Calls @ .77

Rolled the 67 DTE 63.5 put down to 58 for 0.40 debit.

I know we usually roll the untested side, but I am widening the strangle out so I can stay in it longer.
