PPG closed

#Earnings Sold to close $PPG Jan17/Jan24 131 #DoubleCalendar for .12. Bought Wednesday for .50.

Several chances to get out at small profit or breakeven. The rage of profitability really decreases quickly as we approach expiration. I need to take money and run and quit waiting for the long shot of a jackpot.

PNC closed

#Earnings #Assignment On Tuesday I bought $PNC Jan17/Jan24 160 #DoubleCalendar for .50.

Stock dropped too much so trade was a loser. Assigned last night on the puts at 160.00.
Today, sold long puts for 6.60 and stock for 153.53. So I managed to squeeze .13 out of closing the trade.
