SPX reverse roll

#SPX1dte I’m reversing my ill-timed decision to sell a call spread yesterday. We’re in an Upside Warning and the market strength is pervasive. I fortunately got a pullback on some China murmurs, so was able to get out at a non-embarrassing price.

Bought to close $SPX Mar 22nd 2860/2885 call spreads for 4.80. Sold yesterday for 3.10

EOG this week 88.5 cc…

EOG this week 88.5 cc rolled out to 4/5 and up to 89 for 0.20 credit. Cost basis 92.63. Should be a few more rolls to break even.

EOG has excellent premiums but hard to #pietrade. It will move $6 in a week. This one better to swing trade/time I think.

#earnings FDX

Sold April 18, 160/202.5 strangle for 1.67, break-evens, 158/204 are pretty close to the max 1 day moves of 160/205. Thanks Jeff.

SMH STO the 4/26 100.5…

SMH STO the 4/26 100.5 put for 1.02. Ironically the 101 was selling for about the same so an extra 50c of downside for a few pennies. Plan to close in 3-4 weeks at 50%.

STX

#CoveredCalls – Completely forgot about the dividend risk of DITM covered calls. Was holding STX this week for the divvy that went ex today. Friday’s 41.5 calls exercised overnight so missed the divvy. Should’ve rolled them out a couple more weeks.

On the bright side stock basis of 39.65 so not all bad…

ERX 21.50 cc assigned early…

ERX 21.50 cc assigned early last night. Reopened for 4/5 23 cc at 22.31.

Don’t know about the rest of you, but I have been assigned early on about 40% of my positions lately, even when there is still time value left.

ERX Assigned short stock

Would appreciate some advice on this assignment, Presently holding 2020 36 call Leaps, was last night assigned short stock for the 21.50 underwater calls 03/22 I had sold. What would be the best way to handle these?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
