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 Sold to close $SPX July 30th 4410/4390 put spreads for 5.40. Tried to close at the open but was not filled, and then chased all morning as it only went up. Not a great way to start the day when I could have gotten over 12.00!!!

Hoping for a strong rally to get the call side ITM.

Downside warning was canceled

#VIXindicator I forgot one of my own rules for this thing… the Downside Warning is canceled if the $SPX hits a new high, even if the $VIX hasn’t given us the cancel signal yet. So it was canceled last Friday. No Upside Warning yet.
