TSLA

#ShortStrangles – It’s a long way from this new strike especially with the split boost behind it. Rolling up for more credit but still 2x outside the expected move…

Rolled TSLA SEP 18 2020 700.0 Put to SEP 18 2020 1000.0 Put @ 5.55 credit

Now 1000/2900 strangle @ 12.10

PLUG

#BullPutSpreads – Thanks @Jeff for pointing this one out. Might be a fun one to play with…pretty low risk selling ITM spreads. I’ll manage it similar to an earnings spread when I sell those ITM. If the stock tanks one covered call sale will get that back.

Sold TDOC SEP 04 2020 165.0 Put @ 4.30

UVXY

#CoveredCalls – I’ve got a few shares of stock I’ve been covering to keep my basis somewhat near the stock drop. Instead of selling more aggressive strikes I’ve been going out further and overlapping the sales. Once I can safely get a stop on a batch I sell the next ones. This week looks safe so…

STMP Earnings

#JadeLizards #Earnings – This thing has proven that it can go anywhere on earnings. I guess that’s why it’s got the highest IV Rank on my list today by a wide margin. It’s down on the day and I’m playing it further to the downside. Going with the Jade Lizard with the put side close to 1.5x the expected move….2x the expected move including today’s down move. No upside risk but will need the stock down 20 more for a shot at max profit.

Sold STMP AUG 7 2020 215.0/245.0/250.0 Jade Lizard @ 5.90

IV Rank (percentile) in Think or Swim

Not sure why I didn’t do this a long time ago. Very easy to add the column to watchlists and do custom scans for IV rank. It’s an old video but still works perfectly.

SPCE Earnings (early)

#BullPutSpreads – Stock is weak today so putting on my earnings trade now. Taking a shot at a rally but really covering my butt in case of an implosion. Same as all the other ITM spreads I sell. If it implodes I’ll close the long side right at the close Friday and let the shorts get assigned. Should have a basis around a dollar above where the stock ends no matter how far it drops.

Long story short…if it’s below my spread at expiration then the lower the better.
