VXX Long Puts

Getting ready for future #VXXContango Trades
Bought to Open VXX Jun 16 2023 5.0 Puts at $0.40.
I will eventually sell short term weekly puts to recover the cost.

TLRY Covered Calls

Sold TLRY Dec 23 2021 13.0 Calls at $0.15

RIVN Call Diagonal

Bought 1 RIVN Jan 07 2021 180.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 RIVN Dec 10 2021 127.0 Call at $0.17 Credit.
Since I’ve already got a Bull Put spread with the 105.0 Put short for Friday, that gives me a short 105 / 127 strangle with a total Dec 10 premium of $10.02

TNA Calls

Sold 1 TNA Dec 10 2021 90.0 Call at $0.52. I was already short a TNA 90.0 put that I rolled Friday.
Then I added more diagonal spreads.
Bought 1 Dec 23 2021 110.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 TNA Dec 10 2021 90.5 Call at $0.26 Credit
Bought 1 Dec 31 2021 110.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 TNA Dec 10 2021 91.0 Call at $0.02 Credit
Bought 1 Dec 31 2021 110.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 TNA Dec 10 2021 91.5 Call at $0.02 Credit
Bought 1 Dec 31 2021 110.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 TNA Dec 10 2021 92.0 Call at $0.02 Credit

VXX

The 12/10 short 24 puts were closed at 0.1 at the open, and partially resold at 0.4 later the day against Mar 19 puts, have some orders for 23 -20 strikes.

This series was started in Oct as a learning following @optioniceman‘s strategy. The long leg is virtually flat, but so far collected 30% from rolling the short front legs at 24 or 23 strikes.

SPX trades

#SPX5dte Bought to Open $SPX Dec 10th 4585/4605-4615/4625 condors for 18.05, with SPX at 4609.

Looks like I made exactly the wrong move on Friday by selling the call side of today’s 5-dte. Psychology gets me on those decisions way too often…. VIX was soaring and market was down, so I assume the market will continue down. Instead, I should have looked at the decent premium available for the put side and taken it, risking a small loss, but with a good chance of making it a big win today if we bounced. That would have happened if I hadn’t made the wrong choice. Now I just have to look for a pullback into the close, which is certainly possible with current volatility, but looking unlikely with continuing strength in last couple of hours.

SAM

BTC $SAM Dec 460/440 BuPS @3.4, sold for 5.9 before.
taking some off with the upgrade.

NVDA

#JadeLizards – Breakeven down near the 200 day and no upside risk. With IV rank near 100 almost have to sell something here.

Sold NVDA JAN 21 2022 225.0/325.0/330.0 Jade Lizard @ 6.45

SPX

Rolled SPX short 4600 call to Dec 8 for 21.4

Remaining Jan / Dec 8 4600 call calendar with cost basis $77.

TSLA – unwinding a spread

Bought to close 1 TSLA Dec 10 2021 960.0 Call at $43.95. Sold on a rollup on Friday at $70.88
Sold to close 1 TSLA Dec 17 2021 1,000.0 Call at $44.00. Bought to open this on 09/27 at $9.79.

I haven’t tracked how many times I’ve rolled the short side up since September but each roll has been for a credit so this has to be a #WinWin Trade.

I also dumped all my long puts for the coming week at gains.
Sold to close 1 TSLA Dec 10 2021 700.0 Put at $1.20. Bought as the long side of last week’s BCS
Sold to close 1 TSLA Dec 10 2021 750.0 Put at $1.98. Bought as the long side of last week’s BCS
