In addition to the May strangle I sold today, I have had an April 18, 130/135 short ratio put spread (2 short 130s, 1 long 135) trade put on March 1. LULU has been up and down, trade hasn’t been profitable. I bought a March 29, 120/130 put spread for 1.33. If LULU drops big I have some insurance, will be OK on a big rise, the short 130s will cover the hedge.
Sold May 17, 215/220/320/325 for 1.83.
The pull back helped a few positions so rolling.
SQ this week 76/76/76.5 rolled the puts to next week 4/5 to the 75.5 put for 0.08 credit. I will let the call side expire worthless then re-establish the #jadelizard on Monday. Cb now 74.14 on put side, no risk to upside.
STO the 4/5 XBI 86/86/86.5 jade lizard for 1.19 credit. Cost basis 84.81 on downside and no risk to upside. Skewed it slightly to downside in case market keeps going down. Anywhere above 86.5 make 0.69 per contract. Below will roll the puts.
EOG batch 1 rolled the 90.5 cc out 2 weeks to 4/11 for 1.05 credit. Cost basis down to 90.74. 1 more roll should be profitable.
Not having a lot of success with directional trades, but by having time to watch the market (not all day) I have been able to time my rolls better and make more income. Not sure I will ever be a full on directional trader. Even watching the 1 minute /ES chart, just missed the pivot.
