VXX longs

#VXXGame . Bought to open $UVXY March 20th 25 calls for .32, and $VXX March 20th 25 calls for .24.

These are longs I can later sell against, assuming a volatility spike will be coming before too long.

ULTA

#CoveredCalls #ShortPuts – My one bad position. Assigned stock at 315.00 after it tanked last quarter. Sold covered calls aggressively reducing basis to 287. Finally got caught in the never ending up market. Letting the stock go this week (maybe) at 240 and will resume the recovery with put selling to eventually get the 47 points back.

Sold ULTA FEB 7 2020 267.5 Put @ 3.40

SOXL

#ShortPuts – Bought to Close SOXL JAN 17 2020 230.0 Put @ .15 (sold for 3.20)

SPX long closed

#SPX1dte SOld to close $SPX Jan 17th 3315/3330 call spread for .95. Bought yesterday for 1.60. Have been trying to exit all day… got as high as 3.00, but kept reversing before I was filled. My timing in January has been atrocious, so not letting this one fail completely. I sold the 3250/3225 put spread against it for 1.90. That one is currently profitable and I think will be fine to leave for tomorrow.

Expiring today: Jan 15th 3220/3240-3305/3325 condors, sold yesterday for 1.00

TNA

#ShortPuts – Bought to Close TNA JAN 17 2020 67.5 Put @ .05 (sold for 1.38)
