SPX Iron condor

Just back from the dentist but, earlier today I sold the November 23, 4080/4100 call spread for .20 cents along with the 3900/3880 put spread from yesterday.

$TSLA Put Spread

I think the Musk/Twitter panic is played out. Sold to open $TSLA Dec 16 160/150 bull put spread @ 1.78.

SPX risk off

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX Nov 23rd 4065/4085 call spreads for .20. Also closing put spreads. I doubt today’s Fed minutes will have much affect, but cannot be certain.

SPX, iron condor,

I sold the put side of the November 23, 3880/3900 at .15 cents for tomorrow. I am going to wait until tomorrow to add the call side since we are above the 4,000 level and could run a bit from here.

Bullish lean as tomorrow will likely melt upwards slowly.

U Covered Call

#coveredcalls

$U STO 11/25 34 call at .55

Downside Warning canceled

#VIXIndicator $VIX closes at 22.36, ending the Downside Warning that started on Sept 22. If we get two more days closing under 22.50, it will mean an Upside Warning. Not surprising as Thanksgiving week is usually mildly bullish. And $SPX was actually down on the day… but volatility dropped steadily.
