#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Jul20 – my largest expiration cycle since the SVXY bloodbath in Feburary. Slowly using an IRA to dig myself out of a giant hole.

Nice gains, especially in TSLA and NFLX. Happy to see some old #FallingKnife trades roll off too.

I’m also letting a large portion of my remaining long SVXY stock get called away, creating a lot of dry powder for the next Black Swan event, whenever that comes around.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Jan19 – a…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Jan19 – a GIANT expiration and reduction of risk, plus some nice profits of course. I’ll have buying power to work with on Monday.

Some assignments of #CoveredCalls were offset by some #ShortPut assignments. Huge Gains on some long term #VXXGame holdings in $UVXY and $SVXY.

I’m waiting for a real pullback to establish new positions for the summer of 2018.

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Oct20 – A…

#OptionsExpiration #Monthlys #Oct20 – A fairly big expiration as a whole bunch of Puts are expiring. The biggest are $GWW $MYL that have been weak for a long time but are acting better now. Some covered Calls expiring too.

Adding to some existing long stock positions at lower prices but I may be waiting for a while for them to recover. Will continue to sell covered calls on any rallies.

#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.

Finally some trades not related to market volatility, but plenty of those too.
A couple of assignment this time but at least it was only a few contracts.
