SPY Diagonal Puts

Haven’t traded SPY for a while. Since my positions in TQQQ and TNA are so damn strong I’m trying a bit of an offset
Bought to Open 1 SPY Aug 19 2022 390.0 Put at $0.80
Sold to Open 1 SPY Aug 12 2022 401.0 Put at $0.84 for a $0.04 Credit for the first write.

SPX 5-dte

#SPX5dte Sold to close HALF of my position, $SPX Aug 10th 4160/4180 call spreads for 12.00, at 7:44 PT when SPX was at 4182. Bought for 7.00 on Friday.

Planned to hold the rest for more, but then we dropped pretty sharply. Hope this isn’t another head-fake Upside Warning, but it definitely could be, given the uncertainty in the economy.

SPY

Seems like a logical place for SPY to stop for a while. But I’m often wrong 🙂
