#OptionsExpiration

Positions I didn’t need to roll:
BYND 08/16/2019 190.00, 192.50, 195.00 Calls
BYND 08/16/2019 132.00 Put
TSLA 08/16/2019 245.00 Calls
NUGT 08/16/2019 36.50 Calls
UVXY 08/16/2019 35.00, 37.50, 40.00, 45.00 Calls
UVXY 08/16/2019 29.00 Puts

UVXY

Sold UVXY 08/23/2019 50.00 Calls @ 0.33. I was going to cover this week’s 35 Calls @ 0.01 but I don’t have to as they just expired.

SLB

Forgot to mention this earlier. Early assignment last night on some short 34 Puts expiring today. Averages down an old stock position and I’m left with long October strike 25 puts which I will write against again if we get another leg down.
The stock I already hold will pay me my next dividend September 3rd and yields over 6% here.

Tempted fate and sold 08/23/2019 35.00 Covered calls against the entire position @ 0.07. I’ll take the risk that I might have to roll the position up next week.

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold $SPX Aug 19th 2795/2815-2930/2950 condors for 1.15.

Expiring today: Had to watch this all day but looks like I’ll escape with nary a scratch:

Also closed: Aug 21st 2725/2700 put spreads for .25, sold Wednesday for 2.70.

Getting crushed on a 2900/2925 call spread for Aug 21st… holding for the weekend as I think we still have some more correcting to do.
