#butterfly EWW

Bought Feb. 15, 41/42/42/44 for .35

Being mechanical and following my own rules.

EOG 97/98 16 DTE credit spread was breached on the short side this morning. I delta neutral hedged it by buying back 5 of the 10 contracts at the 97 strike . Actually could have done 3 but was in a hurry. Price was 3.1 after I had sold them for 1.48 last week. The math is complicated because I now have a 5 short: 10 long ratio against a put #fuzzy but looks like anything above 99.04 and I break even or make money. If we drop I can always sell 5 again to take the ratio back to 1:1. Since doing that I am up $1635 on the credit spread part this morning.

I will be doing this with any breached credit spread going forward based on the TT research that showed violated credit spreads rarely return to the original range. As long as there is more than a week left to expiration. If inside that would roll first out to 21 DTE or so and then back ratio.

EXPE STO 10 of the 23 DTE 118/120 CCS for 0.40 against a 20 contract put #fuzzy.

Will start some #spycraft on Monday once my LNG and XBI cc are assigned.

SPX 1-dte closed

#SPX1dte Exited short puts for .05, but had to pay .55 to exit call side. Condors sold for 1.20 yesterday.


STO Feb 15 60 cc @ 1.30 with shares selling at 45.65. Time to start working off -15 pt assignment, returning from PSP sun break, yuk, only a couple days in 70’s. Flight last night w/minor mechanical, TSA’s in good spirits!
