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.
