Putting this #FallingKnife on my radar.

#SPX1dte Bought to close $SPX Apr 12th 4155/4175 call spreads for 1.45. Condors sold for .95 an hour ago. The pop above 4129 in the last minute breached my stop, so I closed the call spread after the bell.
Unable to profitably roll these forward for another week:
VXX 04/09/2021 22.0 Put (cost basis on resulting the stock 11.26)
VXX 04/09/2021 21.0 Put (cost basis on resulting the stock 11.49)
VXX 04/09/2021 19.5 Put (cost basis on resulting the stock 11.47)
VXX 04/09/2021 19.0 Put (cost basis on resulting the stock 11.46)
I’ll write covered calls weekly to see if I can get out above my basis

On Monday I bought to Open 1 TSLA May 21 2021 900.0 Call / Sold to Open 1 TSLA Apr 09 2021 725.0 Call @ 0.60 Credit.
Today I closed both sides @ $5.60 Credit.
Total gain in 3 days was $6.20 and it frees up significant buying power. #WinWin with a credit in and another credit out

Sold against existing long June 10 and September 10 Puts.
With the call side (3250/3260 bear call spread) of my iron condor getting breached, rolled $AMZN Apr 16 3100/3090 bull put spread up to 3250/3240 @ 3.91 credit. Position is now a 3240/3250/3260 iron fly with total premium taken in 8.76/max loss 1.24.

The short is before earnings, the long is after earnings.

#SPX7dteLong Bought to open $SPX Apr 9th 4050/4070-4080/4100 iron condors for 15.20, with SPX at 4076.
#SPX1dte Stop was hit at the open, and I tried to get cute and exit this morning for less than 2.00. Could have done it for about 2.20. Missed it, and now in the hole over 11.00. Only hope is for a pull back to 4065.
Sold to close VXX Apr 16 2021 10.0 Puts @ 0.15 & 0.16
Purchased this lot on January 27th @ 0.06 and have been writing against them since then.
I am scaling out of these and when they are gone I’ll start writing them
I’m still long June/September/Jan 2022/Jun 2022 Puts that I continue to write against.
$GME Apr-01-21 180/Apr-09-21 180 Put Calendar bought at @ 13.08. This one wasn’t as easy as previous weeks, highest paper profit reached was 10%ish. Wanted to hold into later the day to extract as much decay from the short leg (It was $3 even when the stock was at 190 this am). Sold half at 13.42 in the last hr. For the remaining half, rolled into a 180/170/160 put BF for 12.1 credit, so the BF net cost $1. With how GME moves around, there “should” be opportunities to get out for some profit next week.
$V May-21-21 215/Apr-01-21 215 Call Calendar bought @ 5.1, rolled short leg to 4/9 217.5 for 0.42 credit
$XBI Apr-01-21 140/Jun-18-21 140 Call Calendar @5.9, rolled the short to 4/9 145 for 0.36 credit.
I closed almost all my credit spread trades, as remaining risk/reward drop below 1:0.2.
