SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Apr 4th 4455/4475-4600/4620 condors for 1.15, SPX 4546, 10.2%, delta -.06 +.06


A good week despite Monday’s high volatility. The abnormal move Monday in VXX allowed for some great premiums on the final write against some long VXX calls left over from previous diagonal spreads.
The strong market even brought my overly large TQQQ stock position back to even. I got lucky with calls expiring in TLRY, TNA and even TQQQ.
