OSTK

#ShortPuts – Gotta book ’em on a move like this…

Bought to Close OSTK OCT 9 2020 65.0 Put @ .16 (sold for 1.60)
Bought to Close OSTK OCT 9 2020 64.0 Put @ .15 (sold for 1.35)

SPY Roll

Bought to close 1 SPY Oct 05 2020 338 Call / Sold to Open 1 SPY Oct 07 2020 340 Call @ 0.50 Net Credit.

SPY rallied 5 points today so getting almost a point for a call 3 points out of the money this morning just wasn’t enough premium I guess.

VXX Diagonal

Selling a small diagonal with the short side next week instead of this week..
Bought to open VXX Jan 15 2021 16 Puts / Sold to Open VXX Oct 16 2020 23.5 Puts @ 0.07 Net Credit.
I expect the short to expire leaving me with a few more “no cost” longs for next January.

I’m thinking the VIX pulls back dramatically by Thanksgiving based on the skew in the VIX futures.

VIX 10-5-20

Short options have helped but hard to offset $50 drop in stock price.
