SPX 1dte picture perfect

SPX Jan23 IC 2595/2600/2680/2685 Put/Call expired. Sold 6 lots at .45 yesterday, 4 in one account and 2 in another. After two harrowing days of defending ICs that breached or nearly breached the short side, today’s closing risk profile was gratifying.

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Upside stop level was hit early, but now pulling back sharply.
Closed the short puts for .05. Looking to close short calls for best price I can get.

Trade sold yesterday for .95: $SPX Jan 23rd 2555/2575-2665/2685

SPY 21dte ladder

Sold SPY Feb13 IC 274/276/251/249 CALL/PUT @.49.
With SPX caught between support and resistance and volatility a little elevated, I added a layer to my ladder. Not a Tide trade.
