SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte My third attempt at a long condor is the first losing one. Looks like the Feb 4th one will expire worthless. We’ll see how things play out through tomorrow if an Upside Warning hits, and proceed accordingly for the Feb 6th expiry.

I also backed out of this roll trade with a profit, as it could get steamrolled on the call side. I’ll look to sell a put spread to replace it.

BTC $SPX Feb 14th (monthly) 2600/2620/2760/2780 #CondorRoll for 3.95. Sold for 6.05 last Wednesday.

SPX 1-dte trades

#SPX1dte Sold $SPX Jan 31st 2615/2635-2735/2755 iron condors for 1.00. (IV 16%)

I hated doing this because I feel the rally today is a headfake, but I cannot fight the tape any higher than this.

Bought to close $SPX Feb 14th 2730/2750 call spreads for 5.75. Sold in a #CondorRoll on Jan 4th.
#CondorRoll Sold to Open Feb 14th 2600/2620/2760/2780 condors for 6.05.

$MU 54 and 54.5 #CoveredCalls #PieTrades Originally assigned via 55 puts, after a few weeks of call sales, exiting with cost basis around 51.

SPX roll

#SPXcampaign Can’t shake these SPX spreads before I leave. Doubling size and rolling to the same expiration on this one:

Stopped $SPX July 27th 2825/2850 call spreads for 6.50
Sold July 27th 2750/2775/2860/2885 #CondorRoll for 3.40, double position size.

SPX trades

#SPXcampaign Closed $SPX July 20th 2685/2660 put spreads for .25. Sold in a #CondorRoll last week. The call side was stopped earlier this week. Rolled half of that into a put spread on Tuesday, and now the second half into this:

#Rolling. Sold $SPX July 25th 2830/2855 call spreads for 4.35.

So I’m presuming we will stall or pullback from here. We’ll see if I’m wrong next week!

SPX roll

#SPXcampaign Monday I closed $SPX July 20th 2810/2835 call spreads for 4.20, which was the call side of a #CondorRoll from the week before. Much of the reason I have mostly paused selling spreads is that the call side has never been more difficult to manage that it has this year.

Today I rolled half of it into puts: Sold SPX July 25th 2750/2725 put spreads for 4.50.

SPX calls stopped

#SPXcampaign Stopped $SPX July 13th 2765/2790 call spreads for 8.55. Sold Monday for 3.65.
Since I have a total of one other position in SPX, I have the margin to roll this not a double sized spread. I’m looking at a July 20th condor for 4.30 or more.
