DG PYPL

#SyntheticStock – Converting this one over to Jan 2019 Bull Call Spreads similar to how I did NUGT…closing the short put side of the synthetic and the disaster put (a BuPS). The stock is still above the LEAP position so a good time to do it (yesterday was even better!).

Bought to Close DG JAN 18 2019 95.0/92.5 Bull Put Spreads @ 1.05

Sold DG JAN 18 2019 115.0 Calls @ 2.75

Caps my upside well above the all time high on the stock which I’m ok with. In exchange for that I reduce the max loss and pick up a quick 1.70 towards being risk free in the position.

BTW…also did this with PYPL today but won’t bore you with the details.

#LongPuts #LongCalls #LongLEAPStraddles – Gonna be an interesting earnings announcement. Tons of premium so still selling aggressively. Rolling the call side today. Didn’t quite get the needed pullback.

Rolled FB APR 20 2018 165.0 Calls to APR 27 2018 167.5 Calls @ 2.30 credit

FAS

#LongCalls #LEAPS – Banks aren’t running away so rolling but staying aggressive with the sales…

TQQQ

#LongCalls #LEAPS – Staying aggressive and selling at the 50ma. Hopefully they’ll be easy to roll.

Bought to Close TQQQ APR 20 2018 155.0 Calls @ .10 (sold for 3.30)

Sold TQQQ APR 27 2018 155.0 Calls @ 3.20

NUGT

#SyntheticShortStock – Using the weakness today in this thing to close my upside protection leaving just long 32 strike puts.

Bought to Close NUGT JAN 18 2019 32.0/34.0 Bear Call Spreads @ .46

This adds .46 to the cost of the long puts but reduces max loss by 1.54 and makes the trade much easier to manage and cleaner when closing.
