LABU Put roll

Since this went slightly in the money late in the day I’m rolling it down to go with the 56 put I rolled this morning.

Bought to Close LABU Jul 30 2021 55.0 Diagonal at $0.68. Sold this on 7/22 at $1.22 on a rolldown.

To replace it, Sold to Open LABU Aug 06 2021 50.0 Put at $0.98, so a $0.30 Credit on a 5 point reduction in the strike price

TNA Put Rolldown

Since it went slightly in the money about 3:00 I decided to roll this one.
Bought to close TNA Jul 30 2021 Diagonal 86.0 Put at $0.41. Sold this last week on a rolldown at $4.46

Replaced it with a TNA Aug 06 2021 77.0 Put at $0.71, or a $0.30 Credit with the new strike 9 points lower.

My short 79 Put and short 90 and 92 Calls will expire shortly

SPX trades

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX 4400/4420-4430/4450 condors for 15.05, with SPX at 4422. I compared this one to the 4395/4415-4425/4445, and it was going for about 25 cents cheaper. That seems to often be the case, that savings can be found if you look at the condor 5 point higher or lower.

SPX week

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Juy 26th 4330/4350-4450/4470 iron condors for 1.00. SPX at 4407, IV 7.2%, deltas -.07 +.07

Crappy week because of the (thus far) head-fake Downside Warning. After taking a small loss on #SPX1dte trade Monday, skipped the trade for Wed & Fri. Took nice profit Monday on #SPX7dteLong but assumed more downside and took losses on Wed, Fri, and next Mon trades. Hopefully back to normal next week.
