#shortstock DENN

These are interesting times to be trading. I have just a few short stock positions, one being Denny’s that I shorted at 13.91, now UP to 16.23. I’ve lamented this before, I know I’m repeating, but in a seemingly bear market, can’t Denny’s participate even a little?

Alphashark tool market tide indicator.

After figuring out a rough number of how many want the tool Bryan has given the go ahead.

Just send him an email directly. Bryan Klindworth and his email is bryan@alphashark.com. Tell him you want the tool and the special pricing and are from the Options bistro. They will then give you a special link to purchase at the discount.

Not sure how long he will leave it up.

Can install in a few minutes on TOS and there are also recordings of mentoring sessions.

The only catch is the first person to buy it has to spend $299. Everyone after that gets it for $249.

Happy Trading! You directional guys will probably love this but it only works on time charts, not ticks or range charts. Just something to be aware of.

Merry Christmas, think I am done until next Thurs.

DUST closing

Just saw this fill from earlier.
Bought to close $DUST Mar 15 2019 40 calls @ .90. Sold for 2.00 on 7/27.
Taking the >50% off 4 months early.
Getting more aggressive in closing profitable positions now just because of how the exploding volatility has made a huge dent in buying power.

SPX 1-dte

#SPXcampaign Sold to open $SPX Dec 21st 2355/2375-2550/2570 condors for 1.05.

BA put spread

Hoping I’m not too early but just sold $BA Jan 18 295/290 BuPS for 1.20 credit. Short strike is below the stock’s big low on 11/20.

VIX touches above 30…

…and we get a 30-point SPX bounce… is that what everyone was waiting for to buy?

UVXY puts paying nicely so will receive the full benefit of those sales when it finally pulls back and the long puts start helping out. Nat gas short helping also…
