A TRADE:

IRBT BTO STOCK @99.75 Added

Taking a loss on NDX iron condor

For today’s expiration. Letting the put spread expire. Watching for a move down into the close to get a better price on on the call spread side.

#earnings #inversion #closing EA

Feb. 5, I sold an 80/100 earnings strangle. Through rolling and going inverted, and rolling some more, I closed a May 3, 90/105 inverted strangle today and made $10.55 after trading costs. EA went way down, then way up, classic whip saw. If I would have done nothing, I may have been OK, but I’m taking the $10 and going to happy hour to plan trading the next earnings on May 7.
