I didn’t “need” to make this trade today, but I wanted to get the strike price down on an up day in the stock. (at least it was up this morning) 🙂

$DUST #ShortPuts #Rolldown – I’ve…

$DUST #ShortPuts #Rolldown – I’ve been sitting on these short puts for months, with big gains in them because they were rolled into when the stock was a lot lower. Taking the opportunity of the move toward 28 in the stock to roll them down and out again.

$SVXY #ShortPuts #Rolldown – after a double dip below 70 last week I’m rolling down my highest strike puts for this week.
Bought to close SVXY Aug 25 2017 79.0 Puts/Sold SVXY Sep 15 2017 74.0 Puts @ 1.10 Credit.
With the extra income from the roll I’ve lowered my breakeven 6 points.
These 79’s were rolled down from Aug 11 81’s on 8/11 for a credit and were sold at 7.37.
So far, rolling SVXY puts is working because of the big forward premium.
