SPX trades

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX April 1st 4455/4475-4635/4655 condors for 1.20, SPX at 4560, IV 21.2%, deltas -.06 +.06

Expiring: March 31st 4490/4510-4660/4680 condors, sold yesterday for 1.375

#SPX5dte Sold to close $SPX March 31st 4555/4575 call spreads for 9.85. Condors bought for 16.90 on Monday. Puts sold for 1.30 yesterday. So loss of 5.75. What a disappointment. Another Upside Warning that has fizzled out immediately (last one was similar, from Dec 27th, but that time we at least got a few days before a drop). This trade looked like it would survive only a few minutes ago. I have been playing this strategy very conservatively and should have stuck to that approach and sold for 18.00 earlier in the hour.

Amid an utter shitshow of macro, micro, political, and geopolitical chaos, the S&P 500 is less than 4% from its all-time record closing high in early January…

As Goldman’s Tony Pasquariello noted, “this is what bear market rallies look like… These types of vicious rips higher are a feature, not an oddity.”
