SPX trades

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Dec 24th 3665/3685-3695/3715 iron condors for 16.25, with SPX at 3691.

I have the same strikes expiring t0day and I totally botched the exit. I didn’t think we would bounce this strongly, so I sold off the call side for 1.00, and then the put side dropped. My only hope is a significant pullback into the close.

I also failed to sell the long put side I bought for cheap for the #SPX1dte… think they got up to about 2.00, but was unfortunately not able to be at my computer at the crucial time… and again, thought we would go lower.

No big worries… this strategy still working strong in long term, despite hiccups in last couple of weeks.

INTC Put Ladder

Starting with Diagonal Spreads. Would take the stock at the short strike and hold the protective put as cheap insurance.
(Also the spread requirements in a retirement account are much lower than straight short puts)

Bought to Open INTC Mar 19 2021 22.5 Puts/ Sold to Open INTC Dec 24 2020 43.5 Puts at $0.02 Credit.
Bought to Open INTC Mar 19 2021 27.5 Puts / Sold to Open INTC Dec 31 2020 43.5 Puts at $0.12 Credit.

INTC YTD Low = 43.61

TSLA

#ShortPuts – Volatility being sucked out today. Just another boring S&P stock now… 🙂 🙂

Bought to Close TSLA DEC 24 2020 475.0 Put @ .35 (sold for 4.20)

INTC – Married Put

BTO 1x INTC Jan 23, $42.5 long put @ $7.75

BTO 1x INTC stock @ $45.40

Strategy: wait until INTC reaches $50.00 and then start selling covered calls. Consider selling 0.5x short puts against the 1x long puts. Give INTC 3 months to reach that $50 target, if not sell stock and close out long put.

Using INTC as a test case before I start looking for bigger fish to fry. Learn to manage the discipline, the boredom, and the timing of selling premium against the core position.

Thanks @optioniceman for the alert.
