#ShortCalls #Rolling #ReverseRolling – This thing is relentless. I’m rolling some Jan short calls early. A combination of reversing into bull put spreads and rolling up and out. This gives March and June 120/105 bull put spreads with short calls above them. Is that a #CoveredBullPutSpread ?? 🙂 🙂

These add to some previous rolls to similar positions…

In July I sold an #ironcondor for earnings, HCA tanked. I originally had a short 82 put, rolled it up to 82.50, the first of 4 rolls, waiting for a week like this week, closed at a gain of 148 today. Thanks to all who have shown how rolling can work.

Earnings & Stock positions this week

#Earnings #LongStock #Rolling #CoveredCalls

$RH #ShortStrangles Dumped my final Dec 1st short 95 call for 8.50, and 80 puts for .10. Then the stock annoyingly dropped, after I’d closed the whole batch for high prices. I gotta ways to go to make up for it. I’m keeping new sales at the Dec 1st expiration, before earnings:
Sold 100 put for 3.50, adding to position
Sold 95 put for 2.65, adding to position
Sold 105 call for 2.95

$FB BTC Dec 1st 187.5 call for .12. Sold for 1.25 on 11/3. I’ll sell a new one on next rally.

$LITE Sold a fourth of my stock for 58.20. Cost basis 60.50. Looks to be recovering so will wait on the rest, with stops in place.

$STMP Assigned another 100 shares last night, disrupting my Dec 1st 200/180 put spread. Will sell the long put today. This leaves me with one remaining put spread and 200 shares.

$HCA This stock was sold for 75.29.by my broker on Friday afternoon due to margin concerns (futzing with SPX spreads). Not thrilled about this, but it has been an annoying one. An 80 covered call also expired Friday, so I’m now flat. Cost basis was 84.00 so that was a crappy loss.

More SPX

#Earnings #ShortStrangle #Rolling
After my $RH Dec 1st 80/95 strangle got crushed yesterday, I have been legging into new positions.
Closed Dec 1st 95 calls for 10.20, 11.75, 12.60 (still holding 2 more)
Sold Dec 1st 95 puts for 2.00 and 1.30
Sold Dec 1st 100 puts for 3.20 and 2.55
Closed Dec 1st 80 put for .40. These should be .05 now but premium is hanging on.

Sticking with Dec 1st, prior to earnings for now. Haven’t sold calls yet as that has been continuously futile. I will probably try a couple on peaks.
