$AMZN STO 3/20 1985/1995 at 2.85

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Feb 10th 3245/3265-3360/3380 condors for 1.25. IV: 9.12%, SPX 3328, deltas: -.07, .08.

Expiring: Feb 7th 3280/3300-3370/3390 condors, sold yesterday for 1.10.

Selling long Feb 7th 3225 calls or letting them expire for a (hopeful) credit, after having covered the short 3300’s yesterday. Legging out worked against me this time.

TSLA strangle

Bought to close part of my $TSLA Feb 14th 550/1300 #ShortStrangles for 3.467. Sold Wednesday for 9.825.

Probably will wait for Monday before closing more.

File Under What Was I thinking

$AMZN BTC 3/20 2050/2080 BECS at 17. STO On 2/3 for 13. Yuck!

ZM Roll

$ZM BTC 2/14 82.50 and STO 3/6 88 at .09 credit extra. Earnings on 3/4. Thesis is earnings run and stock currently at 88.13. Gain another 9 cents plus 5.50 if assigned. Probably too good to be true.

EWW strangle

Borrowing an idea from TastyTrade. Sold $EWW 3/20 45/48 strangle @ 1.20.


Yesterday STO $TSLA Feb 7 Calls @10.50. Selling against existing March 21 2020 585 Long calls.
Today – Rolled above $TSLA 800 Feb 7 Call to Feb 14 800 @28.00.

Thanks @optioniceman

Oil futures have weeklies :)

Taking advantage after the drop.

STO the /CL next week 45.5/55 strangle for 0.23. Plan to close or roll by Monday or Tuesday. The theta decays is huge 285 a day on 5 contracts.

Have not had time to post but this is good news, too good not to share.

Working on dispersion trading. Income trading plus directional kicks when opportunity is there.

Will update after the live trading session at the end of the month.

Hope everyone is doing/trading well.

WYNN put spread

With IV still elevated post earnings, sold $WYNN 3/20 120/110 bull put spread @ 2.43. Possibly early on this but strike is below the January lows and the 200 day moving average. If I’m wrong I will close this quickly.

Downside Warning canceled

#VIXIndicator Forgot to note that yesterday the Downside Warning was canceled when $SPX hit all-time highs. $VIX hasn’t dropped a lot, however, so it may not mean all-clear ahead.
