VXX Weekly Put roll

Bought to Close VXX Dec 04 2020 17.5 Puts / Sold to Open VXX Dec 11 2020 17.0 Puts at $0.12 Credit plus a 0.50 lower strike.
The 17.50 short puts were the short side of a #VXXContango special from 11/23.

That just leaves the Dec 04 2020 17.0 Puts left to cover. They are currently out of the money with VXX at 17.10 but I don’t think VXX stays up here into the close.

But at least I have ALL the short 12/04/2020 calls from my VXX strangles expiring today.

LAZR

#ShortPuts – Taking well over half in a day. Still plenty of time for a pullback to sell Jan again…

SNOW post earnings

#JadeLizards – Sure seems like it’s due for a rest. Selling put side outside the expected move and call side inside the expected move. Only going out a week…

Sold SNOW DEC 11 2020 330.0/400.0/405.0 Jade Lizard @ 6.00

DOCU call spread post-earnings

$DOCU looks to be getting all tuckered out from all the earnings excitement and looks to be needing a little break. Sold 12/18 260/270 bear call spread @ 1.90 with the stock at 244.80.

Today’s candle kinda resembling a tombstone doji, with the current pricenot too far from the lows/bottom of the AM post-earnings gap. IV rank is 33.
