OptionsExpiration

For the third week in a row all my short VXX Puts and Calls expired along with numerous re-writes against worthless old VXX long positions.
The pull back flipped my TQQQ risk from the call side to the put side so I’m looking for a NASDAQ bounceback next week.

NFLX pre earnings

#JadeLizards – Playing for a little more downside selling outside the expected move on the put side. Pretty narrow window here. Earnings the following week.

I’m long plenty of Jan 21st puts to hedge these.
#OnlySpreads

TSLA

for next week.

BTO 1150/1200/1250 call BF @1.85
STO 930/900/800 put BWB @-1.1

So net risk 0.75 if it is stuck between 930 and 1150 at expiration, but will look for opp to recover the debit earlier.
