#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Sep15 – A…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Sep15 – A BIG ONE! – lots and lots of old #FallingKnife and #VXXGame positions falling off today.
Some #CoveredCalls getting assigned with profits, some #ShortPuts getting me long some new stocks. After all is said and done, I’m much closer to an all cash position as we head into October and another large expiration in 5 weeks.

#OptionsExpiration #Aug18 #Monthlys – this…

#OptionsExpiration #Aug18 #Monthlys – this was a big one, with both volatility trades and individual put options coming due, with a scattering of covered calls mixed in.

The market decline, especially in the retailers and oil related stocks pushed some positions in the money and I’m committing some of my 90% cash position to add some long stock not that far from multi-year lows in those names.

I’ll be trading out of some on the next bounce or selling covered calls.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Jun16 – A big expiration this month. I’ve been carrying some of these positions since early in the year.
Wide strangles in $DUST, covered calls in $NUGT, and lots and lots of #Volatility shorts are rolling off.

Only 1 assignment this week, and a light week next week.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #May19 – an…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #May19 – an interesting week with rumor/politics causing a big drop that was almost erased by Friday. Volatility was all over the board, with the VIX rising almost 50% before settling back.

Maybe more fireworks next week, but this week’s swoon set me up with new positions in the weeklys options ($SVXY and $UVXY) through the end of June.

Only 1 small assignment for this week.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Mar17 – it…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Mar17 – it was almost all volatility plays again this week.
$GDX and $NUGT bounced this week on a strong move in GOLD after the Fed announcement, but not enough to take me out of my recently acquired stock positions.
Some nice big gains on some $DUST Puts helped too.
The relentless move up in $SVXY is killing me since I’m net short a lot of long term calls and I’m not making enough on the Puts to offset the climb.
