Luckily I didn’t have to roll any calls up except in SOXL on the big market move into quarter end. Made most of this week’s gain in UVXY and VXX, and suffered through a couple more early put assignments.

Stopped out

#SPX1dte I’m calling this my first sucky trade of 2023. I tempted fate and erased almost all profit from the week.

BTC $SPX March 31st 4100 call for 4.00. Condors sold yesterday for 1.00.

Now that I’ve done that, there’s an excellent chance it will keep falling and make my move unnecessary.

Stocks – Dividend capture

Sold ESS at $204.75
Sold ARE at $123.43
Sold AVB at $162.52

All three of these went Ex-dividend today. I had small gains in these tiny positions so last night I put in sell orders for today at yesterday’s high trade price, never expecting for them to fill after big dividends were no longer included for the buyers.
Since these are all REIT’s, I really think I will get better entry prices in the next 3 months. (52 week lows are about 9 points lower for all three of these)

BTO SPX 4100 calendar @1.1
BTO QQQ 315 calendar @0.38
both long 4/3 and short 3/31 expirations.

BTW, this week’s QQQ 315 calendar was closed around breakeven, could have been much better if managed properly.

FRC Put

My first gamble in this has paid off so trying again for next week
(This week’s FRC 03/24/2023 6.00 Put is about to expire)

Sold 1 FRC 03/31/2023 3.5 Put at $0.28.
Stock is currently trading at $12.12
Once again: Playing this like I would a cheap biotech stock approaching a binary event like a new drug approval

VXX Puts

Bought to close VXX Mar 24 2023 47.5 Puts at $0.01.

Rolled them to VXX Mar 31 2023 44.0 Puts at $0.18. Lowered the short strike 3.5 Points.

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX March 24th 3825/3845-4035/4055 condors for 1.40, SPX 3954, deltas -.06 +.06.

SPX,

BTC 3800/3900-4070/4090 at 1.00that I sold this morning at 1.70,
STO 3850/3870 at .25cents and BTC at .15 during the sell off so a smaller profit than I thought today but a good week so far. I will wait for the premarket tomorrow for another trade.

SPX stopped

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX March 23rd 4025/4045 call spreads for 1.75. Condors sold yesterday for 1.25. Took a small loss in light of fact yesterday’s high was 4039 and with current volatility we could see rally to that level easily.

After that, still tracking at +3.60 for the week, so above my 3.00 goal.
