SPX trades

#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX Sep 3rd 4525/4505 put spreads for 8.00. Condors bought yesterday for 13.75.

This strategy has been working much better if I leg out on the swings. When I started it during the pandemic in 2020, the market was moving pretty big, so I could wait for expiration day and usually get the full 20.00. If I exited one side early, there was too much risk it would keep going in that direction. But now with volatility lower, using the swings is a better bet… especially with an Upside Warning and (economic recovery) giving me confidence that dips are short-lived.
