TWLO TRADE, I never traded…

TWLO TRADE, I never traded this before, and wanted to get the feel for this stock, so only did 1 contract.

TNDM STO 10/19/18 47.0 PUTS @.30 Have some underwater 37.0 calls, so this trade is to mitigate the calls losses.

TQQQ

I rolled all of my January 2020, 66.67 calls out to 2021 and down to the 60 calls for a debit of 8.40 but since I am getting a lower strike of 6.67 points I am really paying 1.73 to roll out an extra year.

BABA

#LongCalls #LEAPS – Going back in for the 5th time. Been good to me so far. With earnings approaching I may be able to cover nearly 20 percent of the cost in the first two weeks. 40 percent starter size. Same as always…non ratio to start out and will roll at zero deltas. Zero deltas a second time I’ll be looking to book the quickie.

Bought BABA JAN 15 2021 150.0 Calls @ 33.25

Sold BABA OCT 26 2018 150.0 Calls @ 2.20
