#closing VIAC On February 26,…

#closing VIAC

On February 26, I sold a 24/25 put ratio spread in VIAC, expiring in April. In March, some strange world events caused VIAC do go down down down. Strangest thing, sports were cancelled.
One short 24 put was rolled to 25, then rolled 4 more times, closed today for .11 for an overall gain of $368.

TRADES:

STO THC 8/21/20 30.0 CALLS @.55
STO VIAC 8/21/20 28.0 NTM CALLS @.56 Will probably have to cover. Have the 26.0 & 27.0 puts open.

My timing sucked today 😦
