#doublecalendar

SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte I’m legging in as I feel the index may continue higher into the close.

Sold $SPX Nov 18th 3085/3065 put spreads for .55. IV 5.98%, SPX 3115.

Will look to sell call side on a spike higher, or perhaps skip it since IV and premium is so low.

Closed CSCO to avoid assignment

#Earnings Closed put side of $CSCO Nov15/Nov22 48.5 #DoubleCalendar for .00 on TOS, for a .01 debit on IB. The short calls will expire, long calls a lottery ticket for next week.
