#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Jun16 – A…

#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 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 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.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Feb17 – A…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Feb17 – A pretty good week as almost everthing worked. $SVXY pulled back allowing more puts to be sold, $UVXY rallied so a new set of Weekly Calls could be sold, and $DUST came off the floor allowing some Puts to expire.

A couple of big covered call positions were assigned and closed out profitably, raising more cash for the coming months.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Dec16 – monthly expirations are always big ones.
Plenty of #FallingKnife Put sales expired. $NUGT and $DUST mostly cooperated.
A Huge number pf Volatility trades rolled off ($SVXY Puts and $UVXY Calls).
Only one small put assignment in a decent stock and a large sale of SVXY generated a lot of cash and a big year end profit.

Only 2 more weekly cycles in this tax year.
