SPX calls closed

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX 3800/3820 call spreads for .20. Condors sold this morning for 1.25. Stop level was briefly breached in the first hour of trading, but was able to wait and close it more cheaply.

I looked into thinkorswim’s “thinkback” back testing and saw that if I had sold the condor Friday before the close, it would have been the 3520/3540-3800/3820 condors for about 1.60. Same strikes on call side but 80 points lower on put side (which makes sense because we were UP in the pre-market when I sold this morning). So I missed out on about 40 cents in premium by waiting.

I will likely alternate between selling day before and day-of, at least until Downside Warning ends.
