Options Expiration

OptionsExpiration

As with any major monthly expiration a lot of old long calls and puts from old spreads rolled off. In most cases I was able to get one more week of writing against them since they were worthless coming into this week.
I start with a clean slate on Monday with a lot less risk.

Except for VXX, there was little left to expire after closing orders and rolls. But EVERY short position I had for this week in VXX expired, so a clean slate starting next Monday.
