NEGG assignment-palooza

As did most of us that put on this trade I got assigned in the 3 accounts in which I was able to execute this trade. Full assignments in 2 of the accounts and partial assignment in 1 of them. I closed the trade where I was fully assigned for .86 and .90 profit, and I covered the partial assignment, leaving a small position in that account with a bit of time value now in the 20 calls. If assigned again here (it’s an IRA) I will obviously have to cover immediately but let’s see what happens. Still profitable with all the craziness so once again thanks @Hawk.

NVDA IC

After today’s pullback, I’m trying a pre-earnings iron condor with IV elevated. Sold $NVDA Aug 13 (weekly) 690/700/900/910 iron condor @ 2.90 with the stock around 792.

Sold to open $AMAT Aug 6 130/120 bull put spread @ 2.45. Stock pulled back to support this morning and is bouncing. Earnings anticipated mid August so the 8/6 expiration looks safe.

Closing SPY

I didn’t like the close today for my bearish SPY trade so I took it off for a loss in the extended hours session. Sold $SPY Jun 25 420 puts @ 2.05. Bought for 2.87 on Friday.

SPY long puts

Gap up into resistance and fading. With market at its highs looking for a bit of a pullback. Bought $SPY 6/25 420 puts @ 2.87. Will take off if the market does its recent Friday up thing in the afternoon but if not I will probably leave over the weekend to hedge for a Monday move down.

Closing BIIB

Just sold the last of the 6/11+6/18 400 put calendar @ 6.00 for 200% profit on this lot. Scaled out in 4 tranches with an average overall profit of 140%. I’ll take this any time. Thanks again for the awesome trade idea @Hawk!

Continuing to scale out of BIIB put calendar

Sold 6/11+6/18 400 put calendar @ 5.00 for 150% profit on this lot. I have now taken 60% of my position off and will hopefully be completely out by later today or tomorrow. It’s been a terrific trade, thank you @Hawk.

SNAP Iron Condor

It looks like the selloff after this morning’s gap may be over. Sold $SNAP May 21 45/53/65/72 iron condor @ 1.86. The wings are uneven (8 wide on the put side/7 wide on the call side) only because of strike availability in the May monthly expiration.

JMIA Iron Condor

Sold $JMIA 5/21 20/25/40/45 iron condor @ 1.58 with the stock at 30.15. Short puts are much closer than short calls but because of call skew this is more delta neutral/slightly bullish.
