Upside Warning canceled

#VIXIndicator The $VIX just took out the Upside Warning by 1-point. We need to close at 16.97 or higher for this to be a Downside Warning.

SPX 1-dte dream shattered

#SPX1dte Major suckage… Stopped $SPX March 4th 2770/2750 put spread for 4.60. What started as a brilliant #RiskReversal turned out to be my biggest loser since December (about 3.00 loss, after all accounted for).

To be expected once you get comfortable allowing spreads to expire. The first time volatility comes back it will take a bite.


NTNX STO 3/8/19 32.5 PUTS @.75 Risky, Falling Knife

SPY long trade closed

#LongCalls Plumb forgot I still had some of these, otherwise I would have sold at the the opening highs.

Sold to close $SPY March 8th 277.5 calls for 2.30. Bought for 1.67 (avg price), sold for 3.54 (avg price).

SPX dump

#SPX1dte Wow… huge reversal. Got stuck holding some longs that are now worthless… at least I sold enough to make that side overall profitable. But now my put spread is threatened and SPX has passed my stop level.

Could this be the blow-off top that starts a new down trend?

CVS adding

Sold $CVS Apr 18 55 puts @ 1.05 with the stock at 57.22. Prices are better now.
Adding to my position, short the Apr 18 60 puts.

CRM condor

#Earnings Sold to Open $CRM March 8th 150/152.5-175/177.5 #IronCondor for 1.15. I put the order in earlier and didn’t expect it to drop this much. But still looking okay based on historical moves (analysis posted Friday.)

Biggest UP move: 11.0%, Biggest DOWN move: -4.4%, Average move: 3.7%. This is trade is +11.5% and -2.9% OTM.

A TRADE: Moth to the flame.

SPX 1-dte risk reversal

#SPX1dte #RiskReversal Sold first batch of $SPX March 4th 2820/2830 LONG call spreads for 2.40. Bought for .45 on Friday (and financed by short put spreads sold for .75). Index not looking too strong so I may have to bail with the rest soon.
