Upside Warning canceled

#VIXindicator The Upside Warning was canceled this morning with the VIX spike. We can now watch for a high VIX close to trigger a Downside Warning, or if we can close back below 12.68 we can look for a reinstated Upside Warning.

#SPX1dte Sold $SPX Jan 6th 3175/3150 put spreads for .40. Looking for small rally into close to sell 3270/3290 call side.

Also selling to close Jan 6th 3265/3280 long call spread…. it has broken even a few times today, then always retreated. Now looks like it will be small loss as I don’t want to risk a full loss by waiting for Monday.

Jan 3rd 3200/3220-3270/3790 condors, sold yesterday for .80.
Jan 3rd 3210/3185 put spreads sold last Friday for 2.60.
