OptionsExpiration

A major expiration for me as well as the market in general.

A lot of old long hedges rolled off today along with many #DoubleDip and #TripleDip call and put writes against those positions.

Virtually all the longs were paid for within 5 days of their purchase because they were part of diagonal positions with the short side expiring within a week. That left them long for future re-writes.

GME: Those railroad tracks look mighty tempting

I know I know, wait for the train to slow down before setting up a picnic on the tracks but I thought I’d put a few small, starter positions out there. Can’t wait to aggressively short this thing but we’re way too early for that. For now though:
Sold $GME 1/29 195 200 bear call spread @ 1.00
Sold $GME 2/19 190/200 bear call spread @ 1.50
Defined risk only of course.

SPY

#ShortPuts – Could be running up to resistance so booking the higher risk election play…

Bought to Close SPY NOV 20 2020 322.5 Put @ 1.20 (sold for 6.12)

#onlyspreads

BIIB

#ShortStrangles – Wild move with the announcment of the new drug. Have to admit I didn’t know that was in the pipeline. Was short 220 puts against a 315 call (2 puts x 1 call). Closing the short call for safety and letting the short puts ride. Will look for new put sales to make up the difference.

Bought to Close BIIB NOV 6 2020 315.0 Call @ 24.25 (12.30 premium received so loss of 11.95)
