SPY Put Ladder

#spyladder #shortputs – Reducing risk by shortening the expirations of my SPY puts and lowering the strikes.

BTC SPY April 11 2022 440 Put for 11.10 (Sold for 11.15)

GTC order open:
STO SPY Feb 28 2022 406 put for 2.20 (If it fills that’s still 13% annualized.)

I’ll reply when/if I get a fill. I think if SPY retests its overnight lows it should fill. Leaving now to go babysit grandkids. Lol.

SOXL TQQQ

#CoveredCalls – Rolled various calls down to slightly in the money for more downside protection. Also bought puts out in (May SOXL) (June TQQQ) at levels equal to where a covid type selloff would get down to now. Continuing basis reduction and hoping to eventually get to a full position.

Partial position

Interest rates,

We have not seen the FED raise interest rates since 2017 so IMHO, this could get ugly. It is not going to be one and done.

TQQQ

Dumped half the TQQQ stock put to me at $54 Friday at $54.20.
