Bought to Open $SPX Oct 14th 3785/3805 call spreads, delta +.05

TQQQ,

I am noticing that the SPXL is out performing the TQQQ so when I get involved again, I will be trading that ETF but one day of a rally does not make a trend for me.

SPX closed for safety

#SPX1dte Closed $SPX Oct 13th 3400/3380 put spread for .10. Condors sold yesterday for 1.25. I will let calls expire.

My job looks like it will afford enough access to my computer that I can continue trading semi-regularly, at least until end of November when we begin shooting. The show I am working on is the third season of “Hacks,” produced by NBC/Universal for HBO.

It will mean I will be closing one or both sides for safety more often than I normally do, so I can be risk-off for remainder of day.

CPI higher than expected (hoped)

Consumer prices rose 0.4% in September and were up 8.2% from a year ago. Expectation was 0.2% increase.

$SPX set to open at new low for 2022, lowest levels since November 2020.

$VIX doesn’t seem to care much, at least in pre-market.
