SPY Jade Lizard

#JadeLizards – Trying something as an experiment. With the big run up the put side of the lizard is doing great. I’m closing it leaving enough premium in the overall position to still eliminate upside risk. There is now three weeks left so I’ll be looking for a decent pullback to sell the put side again.

Bought to Close SPY AUG 19 2022 370.0 Put @ .50

ROKU

#ShortPuts #JadeLizards – Jade Lizard will go away today with a loss of 3.60. I sold the call spread side very aggressively in the money and wide enough where there was some upside risk. Main thing was to help if ROKU continued dropping. Stock recovered so reloading the short put side.

This is similar to why I sometimes sell covered calls below my stock basis to get max downside protection. By the time the stock recovers it’s probably a good time to load up the short put side again to make it up if you get whipsawed. Seems like I get back to even much quicker this way instead of selling less aggressive calls each week.

BYND Earnings

#JadeLizards #Earnings – Looks like we’re not getting rid of cows quite yet… 🙂

Rolled call spread side of the Lizard down from 144/147 to 120/124 for 1.09 credit against a 125 put. Total credit now 4.14 so still no upside risk. Dead zone in this position is from 124.14 to 125.00 I’d be happy for it to get back to those levels.

Sold OSTK SEP 4 2020 85.0/110.0/112.0 Jade Lizard @ 3.25

WDAY Earnings

#JadeLizards #Earnings – Probably should just sell the put since stocks only go up. Still going with the Lizard but a little less in the money on the call side.

Bought to Close STMP AUG 7 2020 245.0/250.0 Bear Call Spread @ 4.90 (Lizard sold @ 5.90)

Letting put side expire….

STMP Earnings

#JadeLizards #Earnings – This thing has proven that it can go anywhere on earnings. I guess that’s why it’s got the highest IV Rank on my list today by a wide margin. It’s down on the day and I’m playing it further to the downside. Going with the Jade Lizard with the put side close to 1.5x the expected move….2x the expected move including today’s down move. No upside risk but will need the stock down 20 more for a shot at max profit.

LRCX Earnings

#Earnings #JadeLizards – I’m calling this a Jade Lizard because it’s fun but adding a disaster put turning it into some sort of an unbalanced iron condor. Still no upside risk and playing for a down move of half to one and a half times the expected move.
