$PTON BTO at 3.79. Ill be pedaling for a while to make this back.

SPCE SPY TNA XBI

#ShortPuts #LongPuts – A few early ones. Prices even better now.

SPCE: Nice gains on disaster puts applied to stock basis. Doesn’t look like it’s going to zero anymore.
Sold 20 SPCE JUL 17 2020 5.0 Puts @ .45 (bought for .10)

SPY: Stock should get called away today at 230.0 so starting a Friday position. Possibly add more after the (un) employment report.
Sold to Open SPY MAR 27 2020 230.0 Put @ 2.90

TNA: Trying to add at pretty low risk. Cuts basis of shares almost in half for easier recovery.
Sold TNA MAR 27 2020 16.0 Put @ 2.10

XBI: Roll up for more credit.
Rolled XBI APR 17 2020 60.0 Puts to APR 17 2020 65.0 Puts @ .75 credit (2.55 total now)

SMH

#LongPuts – Bought a bunch of these during the rally the other day. Mainly to help partially protect my SOXL position. Booking them here and I’ll use the gain to decrease the SOXL basis by another 12 dollars.

Sold to Close SMH JUN 19 2020 60.0 Puts @ .92 (bought for .35)

SLB again

#LongPuts – On second thought I’m only holding these long puts to protect in the event of a CH. 11 filing so booking profits and buying a bunch more cheapies that would get the position out at close to even if SLB disappears.

Rolled 10 SLB JUN 19 2020 17.5 Long Puts to 20 AUG 20 2020 5.0 Puts @ 1.96 credit (bought for .36)

I’ll apply all the long put profits to the basis in the stock…

SLB

#LongPuts – Bought a bunch of these a few weeks ago to protect some short puts with all the turmoil in the oil patch. Taking a little profit out but keeping plenty of protection.

Rolled SLB JUN 19 2020 17.5 Long Puts to JUN 19 2020 15.0 Puts @ 1.35 credit (bought for .36)

UVXY

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Closed the last third of these earlier. Orders in to replace them at lower prices. Decided I’ll trade around these LEAPS for awhile instead of holding them until expiration.

Sold to Close 5 UVXY JAN 15 2021 50.0 Puts @ 28.15 (bought for 22.90 average)

UVXY

#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)

CMG

#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 #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.

A near record setting week of premium selling last week and this week is shaping up nicely. Let’s see where the bounce goes…

DUST

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Turned out to be a good short but feel like I’ve got about all I can get for now. Gold pushing up against resistance and DUST back near it’s original starting point prior to the run up so booking it.

Entered the trade on the spike in mid August and added on the September spike. In spite of some weekly puts having issues and never quite getting to a full position it turned out ok.

#LongPuts #LEAPS – These were oversales so closing a little more aggressively…

Bought to Close UNG NOV 30 2018 27.5 Puts @ .04 (sold for .71)

UVXY

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Rolled UVXY NOV 23 2018 60.0 Call to NOV 30 2018 60.0 Call @ 2.25 credit

Total credit received on the short call now up to 4.40. One short call paired up next week with 8 of the 54 strike short puts so hopefully the call will take all the heat.

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Extra put sales against the LEAPS…closing for safety since gold seems to be perking up a little…

Risk reduction on one contract taking the small loss…

Bought to Close TQQQ JAN 18 2019 40.0 Put @ 3.50 (sold for 2.50)

LABU/LABD

One of my most frustrating positions so going to try something. Converting the LABU long LEAP calls to long LEAP puts on LABD. The built in drag should help this and the call side was approaching massive whipsaw risk with sales so far below the LEAPS. New position is out to 2020 instead of 2021. Collect as much premium as I can between now and then and then see where it stands.

To establish the new position, I sold the calls and bought whatever puts were the same price and just rolled the basis to the new position. Long 25 strike puts now so will be selling above those but not nearly the whipsaw risk that the call side had.

Long story short…about 30 cents a week on a 5 lot is the goal. Hopefully can get most of that.

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Over selling slightly against the 2020 long puts. Would like to get this down to a zero risk trade before nat gas implodes in the spring. Stops set on previous sales…

#LongPuts #LEAPS #ShortCalls – Taking a little risk off and looking for new sales…

Bought to Close UVXY NOV 23 2018 75.0 Call @ .75 (sold for 2.55)

#LongPuts #LEAPS #ShortCalls – Now that we’re easing back into contango I’m going to lower the number of short calls I have at risk at any given time so gradually closing those for nice profits. I’ll continue selling one (or two) every week at the top of my put ladder. Short 10 puts against one short call would give me protection for about 30-40 points of upside depending on the week of the call sale. I would welcome the opportunity to roll the short call and let the puts expire…

Bought to Close UVXY NOV 16 2018 70.0 Call @ .38 (sold for 3.40)
Sold UVXY NOV 16 2018 50.0 Call @ 3.00

Analyzing just the call sale against the short puts gives this. The downside is exaggerated here since I’ve unchecked the LEAP puts that I’m long.

UNG

#LongPuts #LEAPS – I’ll take a shot with a half size starter. Longer term bearish mainly due to contango and global warming 🙂 . Going out to 2020 since option prices aren’t that much more to get an extra nine months. I’ll sell aggressively in the beginning and then hopefully be able to get out of the way later on. Planning on selling about every 30 days so still only need 23 cents in each sale.

AMAT AMBA EWW EWZ LABU PYPL UVXY

#LongCalls #LongPuts #LEAPS – Was out most of the day but did get in just in time to get a few sales off. Morning would’ve been better but the volatility is helping premium across the board so still sold a little. Biggest change is closing a couple of the long term positions that were near breakeven (AMBA and EWZ) and moving some of that cash to UVXY and possibly adding to TNA and TQQQ.

AMAT: Waiting for earnings date confirmation before selling anymore.

Bought to Close AMAT NOV 2 2018 36.0 Calls @ .02 (sold for .38)

AMBA: Closed for small loss. Happy with it since stock moved against me from day one. Another 2020 position closed and looking to add to some 2021’s that are beaten down.

Bought to Close AMBA NOV 2 2018 38.0 Calls
Bought to Close AMBA NOV 9 2018 36.0 Calls

Net loss of .21 on a 10 lot…

EWW: Overlapping sales since this week’s 48’s look safe.

Sold EWW NOV 16 2018 45.0 Calls @ .41

EWZ: Closing it on the bounce to free up cash to add to UVXY. Small loss but a successful long term repair trade.

Bought to Close EWZ NOV 9 2018 35.5 Calls (ratio’d)
Sold to Close EWZ JAN 15 2021 40.0 Calls

Net loss of .36 on a 10 lot…

#LongPuts #LEAPS – Selling calls and puts against a long put LEAP position. Selling less calls and scattering them out for extra safety. Rolling this week’s and holding short 70 strike the next two weeks. Will continue pounding the weekly put sales as long as I can.

#LongPuts #IRA – Playing it in two different accounts. One more conservative since it’s an IRA that doesn’t allow naked call selling. Might sprinkle a few call spreads in but mostly just selling the puts. The other account allows naked call selling so I’ll be selling the puts more aggressively against those.
