TQQQ Early Call Roll

Rolled TQQQ 08/20/2021 120.0 Calls to next week for a $0.93 Credit.
An unusually generous roll premium given that the call is so far in the money.

TNA Puts and Calls

Sold TNA Aug 20 2021 79.0 Diagonal Put at $0.84.

As an offset Sold TNA Aug 20 2021 85.0 Diagonal Calls at $0.52

So a 79.0/85.0 Strangle premium of $1.36 for the next couple of days

TLRY Calls

Sold TLRY 08/27/2021 16.0 Covered Calls @ 0.19

SPX trades

#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX Aug 23rd 4460/4480 call spreads for 8.50. Bought yesterday for 7.90.

My *guess* is that yesterday’s VIX spike was a head-fake and we are still going higher. But gotta follow my rules and dump out of this while some profit is available. Another dip would likely mean full loss, since I have no put side on this one.
