SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX Dec 30th 3780/3760 put spreads for .30. Condors sold yesterday for 1.15. Stop touched barely right after open, but it bounced so decisively I put it on watch rather than exiting quickly.

Final 4-day week profit: +2.98

That completes 2022 for me. I found a pretty steady profit and learned a lot more about managing this strategy. I’m doing some analysis of the year to assess whether any changes should occur for 2023. I’ll place the first trade for Tuesday expiration this afternoon.

Question about keeping track of trades

Over the years, I have noticed that keeping track of trades is taking 2 to 3 times longer that the actual trading activities.

I use Excel spreadsheet and entering open/close trades is not a big deal. However, when I roll positions, sometimes for years, it is a tedious task.

Has anyone found a better way of recording trades (than Excel), including multiple rolls?

OptionsExpiration

Weak market crushed my long stocks but at least all the short calls and covered calls on those names expired.
Glad I didn’t re-initiate my SPY #DailyLadder trades after the last of my short puts expired Thursday.
