NVDA flushed

#Earnings So the trade headline killed my trade… as usual, legging out is a very bad idea for me. Some accounts now have a loss in this trade, while others will breakeven.

Sold $NVDA long 155 calls for 1.48.

Another Trade “news” update

“Sources” say trade talks have stalled. Is this really news? How can anyone suddenly be surprised and start selling? Answer: no one can… the computers do it.

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold $SPX May 20th 2795/2815-2910/2925 condors for .85. (IV: 10.04%, SPX 2873)

Expiring: May 17th 2810/2830-2910/2930 condors, sold yesterday for 1.30.

NVDA iron condor

Sold $NVDA 6/21 140/145/175/180 iron condor @ 1.50 credit with the short strikes (145 and 175) around 20 delta. IV rank still on the high side (43).

NVDA still closing

#Earnings On this minor dip I bought to close all of the short 160 calls for .46. Now I will wait for a drift higher to sell the long 155 calls, and get a few cents for the 162.5 calls as well.

Meanwhile, $DE trade was a miss, but a super cheap one. And I have 160 calls as a lottery ticket for next week.

#ShortPuts – Down nicely today. Selling (again) down near the 200ma in a lot of congestion and well before next earnings. 7th time in this one this year.

Sold NTES JUN 14 2019 247.5 Put @ 3.40
