SPX stopped

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX Aug 15th 4310/4330 call spreads for 1.25. Condors sold for .95 this morning.

Selling these in the morning definitely more difficult now, so I can’t be forgetting like I did on Friday. Had I sold then, my short call strike would have probably been 4340.

SPX 5-dte

#SPX5dte Sold to close $SPX Aug 17th 4260/4240 put spreads for 7.50. I’m sensing we will again test the 4280 level (or higher) so selling the put side now. Condors bought for 16.40 on Friday.

MSFT,

STO September 16, 260 put at 1.33, just small trades to keep involved.

UVXY vs. VXX

Once again:
The idea of the #VXXContango trades was that VXX was a wasting asset that was bound to lose value over time from the contango losses that happened when VIX futures contracts were rolled forward each month.

However, VXX appears to be broken due to Barclay’s having issued many more shares than they were allowed. As such, I’m switching this strategy over to UVXY as it tracks the VIX index more closely and has a more predictable contango loss.
Sold to close VXX Oct 21 2022 12.0 Puts at $0.18. Bought on 07/01 at $0.15 and wrote against it several times including covering the entire cost the first week. #WinWin
