Stopped already

#SPX1dte After selling the condor, SPX moved up from 2868 to top out at 2891, which was within the expected move for Monday. So I had to stop out of the call side for 1.40.

I may sell a same day condor on Monday if the open in quiet, but otherwise this one’s s small loss.


AMD BTO STOCK @28.00 Have a great and safe weekend everbody.


That is what bailed me out this past couple of days. I had VXX calls took a nice profit. Then bought VXX put spread, covered most of my other bad trades (that at this time would not have been bad).
