#earnings #rolling STT
October 17, sold a Nov. 55/65 strangle, Nov. 7 rolled to Dec. 20, today rolled to a Jan. inverted strangle.
I don’t even want to look at TSLA.

October 8, sold a 97/128 strangle for 1.05. October 9 SMH started going up and up. Today rolled to Dec. 105/128 for 2.01. SMH is at 133.

#ContangoETFs NUGT is reaching highest levels since Sept 2017. These are my first sales where I am #Rolling from stopped 35 calls.
Sold $NUGT Jan 2020 50 calls for 5.75.
#Earnings #Rolling #ShortStrangles
BTC $UBER Aug 2nd 41 put for .05. Leaving the call to expire.
41/47 strangles sold for .85 on July 12th. This was my fourth strangle and has me breaking even from busted earnings long straddle. UBER is definitely NOT a mover. I’ll wait for earnings and then consider whether to keep the strangles as an ongoing strategy.
#Earnings #Rolling My earnings condor is a bust, with the 148/150 call side set to expire ITM, which will be a 2.00 debit, against the .80- credit for selling it on Tuesday. So I’m trying a one-week move to breakeven.
Sold $SWK Aug 2 148/150-152.5/155 condors for 1.30. If we can hold tight enough to expire I should come out flat after accounting for commissions.
#SPX1dte #Rolling from the stopped spread: Sold $SPX July 31st 2910/2935-3055/3080 condors for 3.00.
Note these expire on same day as FOMC decision.
Continuing my revenge campaign on $UBER,
Sold UBER Aug 2nd 41/47 strangles for .85.
Earnings are Aug 8th. On last earnings I bought a long straddle, but stock decided not to move. So now I’m selling strangles, and its working because it still ain’t moving much.
Both sides of $UBER July 12th 42/48 strangle closed for .05. Sold on June 20th for 1.25. I’ll do this again later in the week.
#Earnings BTC $UBER June 21st 40/46 strangles for .15. Sold for 1.05 on June 5th, as a roll from busted earnings trade.
#Rolling again: Sold $UBER July 12th 42/48 strangles for 1.25. Only partial fill, may have to lower to 1.20.
#Earnings #Rolling BTC $AVGO June 21st 267.5/262.5 put spreads for .40. Sold Friday for 2.40 as a roll from busted earnings trade. Ending profit from original condor sale: .85.
#Earnings #Rolling Sold $AVGO June 21st 267.5/262.5 put spreads for 2.40.
I have the 270/267.5 put spread expiring today, so at the moment it will be max loss of 2.50. So I rolled to next week, going down ne stark and also widening to 5.
But it is rallying now so loss may be less than 2.50. I wanted to sell the roll before its price dropped much more.
#SPX1dte #Rolling Maybe a period of consolidation after hitting against 2900 resistance?
Sold $SPX June 20th (monthlys) 2765/2785/2960/2980 condors for 2.50.
#Earnings So much for my speculative play of a #LongStraddle. Seem like the stock really likes 40. Nonetheless it did bounce around today but was unable to sell at the best times because other commitments had me running around the house and town too much.
Sold $UBER 40 straddle for .45. Bought yesterday for 3.15
#Rolling: Sold $UBER Jun 14th 37/43 #ShortStrangle for 1.00. See if I can work that three times and get back the losses.
That loss erases my decent win on $ANF straddle, leaving me flat for the week.
Also, Sold to close $DG call calendar for .10. Bought #DoubleCalendar for .39 on Wednesday. Long 118 put as lottery ticket for next week.
#SPX1dte Stopped $SPX May 29th 2770/2750 put spreads for 2.70. Condors sold yesterday for 1.05.
#Rolling Sold June 5th 2700/2675 put spreads for 2.70. (IV: 18%, SPX 2778, expected move 59.00)
#Earnings #Rolling #revengetrade
Sold $GOOGL May 17th 1220/1210 put spreads for 7.75. Replacing my fully ITM spread of the same strikes expiring today.
#SPX1dte BTC $SPX Apr 30th 2950/2970 call spreads for 4.05. Sold condors for 3.80 on Apr 15th. Too close for comfort.
#Rolling Sold SPX May 8th 2865/2890/2985/3010 condors for 4.55. My first 3,000+ strike!
Also, BTC Today’s 2955 calls for .10. Sold in the call spread this morning for .75.

#rolling, adjustments, and new trades
MU rolled the 35/35 out 16 DTE for 0.5 credit. Cb now 14.30
WDC 40/40 rolled out 9 DTE for 0.33 credit. Cb now 17.71
I was going to close these at a loss but figure if I can get at least 0.25 per roll will keep rolling to generate cash and lower cost basis. 10 contracts each so decent income.
SQ STO the 9 DTE Feb 8-9 68 put for 1.53. Decided not to jade lizard until after FOMC and see what the market does. If we gap up I will sell the CCS once it has a top or range.
FOMC must have just released up 10 more on /ES. I may #jadelizard SQ into the close if it slows down to the upside.
After 4-5 months of crap trading, finally making some income/cash and money again but I still have a long way to go to recover the SVXY fiasco.

Nov. 14, sold short 100 shares at 45.94. Nov. 15 sold a Nov. 23, 46 put for .60, Nov. 20 rolled it to Nov. 30 for 2.56, rolled it today to Dec. 7, have net 185 in premium, CLR is at 44.33.
#shortputspread #rolling WYNN woes
Besides being assigned shares at an outrageous basis, I have a Dec. 21 110/120 put spread that was meant to help me out, has been rolled up and out. Ex-div day is next week, don’t want any more underwater shares, so just in case I rolled to January and paid a debit of .50 for the privilege. Expanding the spread by 5 points would bring in about 2.50.
A short 110 call expires in a few minutes. I recommend they reprogram the slots and lower the payback rate.
#earnings #rolling TEVA
October 31, sold a Nov. 16, 20 straddle for 2.55, TEVA jumped to about 24, today rolled the call to Dec. for a measly .24.
Had some things expiring and others just out of time value so #rolling, closing, adjusting.
TQQQ CC 63 rolled out to 42 DTE and down to 61 for 1.55 credit. CB now 59.10.
TQQQ lot 2 CC 63 same as above. Cb now 59.45.
QQQ 7 DTE 150/155 #supercharger sold to close for 4.92. Bought for 4.52 so about $132 profit on a 3 lot.
New TQQQ #supercharger 21 DTE 40/45 bought for 4.50.

#rolling and recovery
Scalped a few more trades on /NQ and gave back my gains. But learned that 15 min and 30 minute chart is probably ideal for scalping. 1 and 5 minute too much chop. I will be adding some more directional trades and using my tools.
XBI 80/97 rolled to 80/90 for 0.49 credit. Cb 17.84
LNG 50/66.5 rolled to 22 DTE 65 for 0.49 credit. Cb 17.84
XBI lot 1,2,3 closed for losses totaling 620. With only until Jan 2019 and hardly any cash in this account did not think it was worth trying to recover and losing more.
LNG Lot 1 66 cc rolled down to 65 and 43 DTE for 0.83 credit. Cb 60.99
LNG lot 2 66 cc rolled the same for 0.9 credit. cb 61.00

What are you guys doing?! I go mt bike for 2 hours and the market is melting down again.
#rolling and adjusting. Everything hedged so not too bad on paper, still waiting for a ton of short options to decay but the volatility is keeping the prices up. Good for when I can roll.
/CL I had a stop loss on the strangle and it must have triggered early in the morning when oil was down 2. Lost $750 as it closed at 0.87. Re-entered 57 DTE strangle but went wider, delta 4s and sold the 55/86 strangle at 0.28.
LNG lot 1 66 cc rolled out 22 DTE for 1.25. Cb now 61.28
LNG lot 2 66 CC rolled out 22 DTE for 1.24 credit. Cb 62.39
XBI 87/95 2019 LEAP rolled out to 43 DTE for 0.28 credit. Cb now 4.05.
Sitting on my hands for another 1-3 weeks, then big expirations which should free up a lot of cash. Hopefully things stay on sale:)
Hope everyone is doing well and making some $ on the volatility.
