Borrowing an idea from TastyTrade
Short strikes at around 2x the expected move. With IV as high as it is now, there’s premium way out near 2 standard deviations.
Sold $FB Nov 16 120/172.50 strangles @ 1.67
#SPXcampaign Man, my exits have been sucking lately. Was too greedy when the SPX was flat today, so missed a fill then and caught in the updraft. I really have to work on this. It got up to at least 3.00 in profit, before it slipped away and became a 3.00 loss.
BTC $SPX Oct 31st 2675/2700 call spreads for 10.85.
Selling a higher spread now or in the morning. I’m not turning bullish unless VIX drops more or we get several up days in a row.
Sold Dec. 21, 135/160 strangle for 3.02.
