#Earnings #Rolling I have not managed $OLED well at all since getting slammed on earnings. I’m actually not too far in the hole so sticking with 1-lots:
BTC $OLED June 15th 115 put for 21.75. Sold for 19.00 last month.
STO July 6th 100 put for 7.60
STO July 20th 110 put for 16.80.
Only one winning expiration:
$GUSH 45 call, sold for 1.05 in April, #ContangoETFs
These expired as losses:
$SPX long June 15th 2825/2850 call spreads, bought for .75, avg price, #SPXCampaign
$VXX long 30 puts, bought for 1.17, avg price
$VXX long 25 put, bought for .21
$AMBA long 50 call, bought for 3.90, #LongCalls
Also, hedges expiring (partially replaced with #VXXGame trades yesterday):
$UVXY 60 calls, bought for .69, avg price
#ContangoETFs $GUSH topped out early this week at 47, which triggered my rolling of several ATM positions… then it did what a ContangoETF is supposed to do… dropped dramatically. Bummer that its highs had to be right around my strikes, forcing the rolls. I rolled one into a strangle that may soon have its 31 puts breached. I waited on another, which was a mistake as it is now too low to roll into a higher call. Such is the folly with these ones destined toward zero.
#ContangoETFs Closed these positions yesterday, leaving me flat in all three tickers.
BTC $KOLD Nov 68 call for .25. Sold for 2.50 on March 23.
BTC $NUGT Jan 2019 50 call for .98. Sold for 5.025 (avg price) in Dec/Jan.
BTC $DUST Jan 2019 45 call for 1.05. Sold for 4.80 on Feb 9.
#ContangoETFs Closed $GUSH Dec 46 call for 9.90. Sold on Apr 4th for 4.00.
Order filled on the way down, and then it dropped a lot more. Using a #StrangleRoll on this… it’s quite doubtful that both of these strikes will expire, but I’ll take the premium now and deal with any breaches later.
Sold GUSH Dec 32/57 strangle for 10.55.
#ContangoETFs Closed $GUSH June 15th 45 call for 3.50. Sold for 1.05 on April 19th.
#Rolling: Sold July 50 call for 3.90.
Closed GUSH Sept 45 call for 8.20. Sold for 2.75 on May 4th.
#Rolling to the Dec 55 call, not yet filled.
Also stopping the Dec 46 call, not yet filled.
Some time ago I remember a post with a list of #ContangoETFs that work well for selling puts and covered calls.
What do you like to trade?
#ContangoETFs BTC $KOLD Aug 60 calls for .15. Sold for 1.50 and 1.75 in March.
