#spxcampaign BTC my Sept 28th 2800/2820 BuPS and Sept 28th 2790/2810 BuPS at .20. Originally sold for a 1.20 and a 1.05. Mitigates the damage from yesterday a bit. Traveling next week so I’m not putting anything on. My daughter is presenting her research as part of her degree requirements so we are off to be wowed. I had always thought she would go into business. Never tried to influence her career choice. Instead she ended up in biology like her old man. Damn, genetics is a powerful thingy. Ha!.

#spxcampaign Stopped out of my Sept 28th BeCS @ 3.15 off a GTC stop order. I adjusted the stop loss order to 3x the 70% of the credit received for the entire IC rather than based on the credit for the leg. The ones from last week would have worked if I had used a stop based on the IC rather than the individual legs. So I believe this is the better set up but the gap up this morning was a killer. I was loading in an adjustment by rolling up the short call but was stop a millisecond before I fired off the order. Still learning.
