SPY Rolls

Rolled all today’s short diagonal calls to Wednesday or Friday expirations for small credits.
Too numerous to list.

SPX rises…

…and so does VIX. The day opened at 3505 with expected move for today’s expiration at 18.00. So with my short strike at 3530, it seemed safe for me to head out on some errands this morning. Now, expected move was MORE than doubled.

Looking for any pullback to get out at a smaller loss than I’m seeing now. #SPX1dte
