Options Expiration… VIX Indicator

#OptionsExpiration #VXXGame
Only one #Assignment, my final $SVXY 90 put

#VIXIndicator — The VIX is reacting strongly to the upside at any sign of volatility. Although we spent the morning in cancelation territory, the Mueller spike sent up back above 19.00. So although we’ve been steadily rising, volatility is still hanging around.

#Assignment Assigned at 40.07 on Nov 17 45 put, collected 3.12 premium opening trade. Shares trading at 38.79 will keep divy stock, ex-div Nov 11, unless it moves to tank zone….


Assigned on expiring $MZOR 60 put. Apparently stock went below $60 after hours. Option expiration never sleeps. Not an issue since my intent in selling these puts was to acquire some stock.

STMP assigned

#Earnings #Rolling #Assignment #LongStock

Before I had a chance to roll my $STMP Nov 17th 200/185 ITM put spreads, I was assigned 100 shares at 200.00. I sold the corresponding long put today for 9.35, so cost basis 190.65. Working on a roll of the rest as well as a covered call.
