#LongPuts – Bought a bunch of these on the big spike in Dec and Jan. Have gradually reduced basis in them by selling call spreads and puts. Booking two thirds of them now and keeping enough to match my ITM short puts. Also using about a third of call premium received each month to finance the rolling down of the short puts until we get the next big spike.

Sold to Close 10 UVXY JAN 15 2021 50.0 Puts @ 29.30 (bought for 22.90)


#LongPuts – I had bought these as lottery tickets in a 401k with the plan of selling put spreads against them to pay them off. I’ve just been advised that spread trading will not be allowed in this account so walking away with the .30 loss. I could still set up the spread with two trades but refuse to pay Fidelity the extra commissions.

Sold CMG JAN 15 2021 210.0 Puts @ 1.50 (bought for 1.80)


#LongPuts – Lottery tickets here…

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Looking to sell again on a spike…

Bought to Close UVXY JAN 18 2019 80.0/85.0 Bear Call Spreads @ .05 (sold for 1.17)


#LongPuts #LEAPS -I’m a little disappointed in this one. It could’ve been a really good one but nat gas just imploded way faster than I thought was possible and my ratio was a little high on the put sales. On the bright side, between this and BOIL the Nov spike worked out ok.

Bought to Close UNG FEB 15 2019 29.0 Puts
Sold to Close UNG JAN 17 2020 28.0 Puts

All said and done it’s a .50 winner on a 15 lot…
