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.

TDOC earnings

#CoveredCalls – Sold the covered call slightly below my basis for max protection. Stock didn’t drop quite enough so letting it get called away tomorrow for a 2.80 loss. Jumping back into the stock with a directional play. This will get me back to overall profit on the whole thing or get back into the sock at a reasonable level.
