Bought strangle for .70, sold yesterday for 1.15.
Thanks for the earnings data Jeff

PPG closed

#Earnings Sold to close $PPG Jan17/Jan24 131 #DoubleCalendar for .12. Bought Wednesday for .50.

Several chances to get out at small profit or breakeven. The rage of profitability really decreases quickly as we approach expiration. I need to take money and run and quit waiting for the long shot of a jackpot.

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Jan 21st 3270/3290-3350/3370 condors for 1.00, IV 5.44%, SPX 3323.

Expiring today: Jan 17th 3255/3275-3330/3350 condors, sold yesterday for .90


#ShortPuts – Losing my enthusiasm for this one. If 320 doesn’t hold there’s not much under it to stop it. Taking a small gain and waiting for earnings now.

Bought to Close BA JAN 24 2020 322.5 Put @ 2.90 (sold for 3.10)

Making a new all time high so BTO 310/330 call spread in May for 8.95 and STO the 290 put at 13.36


FB is breaking out to a new high and earnings are on Jan. 29 so, I bought a 220/240 bull call spread for 7.65 and a March 20 expiration. To help pay for the spread I sold the 205 put at 3.34,


Appears to be in a nice volatility squeeze without increase in volume. Looks like it could pop to the upside, but hasn’t yet.
Any ideas on how to play this, or just watch? Thoughts appreciated?

PNC closed

#Earnings #Assignment On Tuesday I bought $PNC Jan17/Jan24 160 #DoubleCalendar for .50.

Stock dropped too much so trade was a loser. Assigned last night on the puts at 160.00.
Today, sold long puts for 6.60 and stock for 153.53. So I managed to squeeze .13 out of closing the trade.
