#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 #Weeklys #Aug11 – It was all about volatility this week.
Finally went long ‘some’ $SVXY against my short Jan 2018 and Jan 2019 Call positions
Dumped a small odd lot of $UVXY at the equivalent of 40 on a call assignment.

$VIX and VIX futures were down today and the S&P was up. If we don’t have war breakout over the weekend, the market should be strong on Monday.

Those are becoming harder to find without taking big risks as the $VIX index is hovering near 10.
