Back to back 3%+

First time since November 2008 that SPX dropped more than 3% two days in a row.

Gap Opens

Following up to my Post yesterday, here is a chart of all SPX gap opens that were plus or minus 2% or greater since 1/1/2000. Click the chart for a larger view.

On the left is 1/3/2000, and on the right is yesterday, 2/24/20. The cluster near the middle is the 2008 crash. As you can see, a very long gap between 2014 and now.

SPCE Earnings

#BullPutSpreads #Earnings – Selling slightly in the money. If I get lucky and the stock goes up it’ll be a nice winner. On the other hand, no matter how far it drops I’ll own stock about 1.70 below my basis which can be more than made up in one week of call selling with the extreme premium on this thing.
