Rolled Feb. 21 inverted 300/430 short strangle to March 20 for 2.69. TSLA up to 770 today, uggh
I’ve now taken in $10,756, trying to avoid assignment.
Have I said lately that I hate TSLA.
I rolled a Jan. 3, 350 put to Jan. 3, 430 for 11.68, giving me a Jan. 3, 300/430 inverted strangle. I have collected 62.37 over 6 rolls. Next week I’ll likely roll again, earnings are coming up argghh.
Rolled Dec. 20 inverted 300/350 strangle to Jan. 3. I Have collected $5,046 in premium. This started as a 210/300 earnings strangle on Oct. 3.

#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.
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.
#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.
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.

$BURL Assigned shares at 165 and 167.5 via a bullish trade on earnings. Stock currently at 143.52. Plan to sell calls if stock stabilizes. Right now it looks to be made of lead.
$SOXL BTC 5/17 100 call and STO 5/17 125 call at even. Stock currently at 117
#SPX1dte Stopped $SPX March 8th 2720/2700 put spreads for 2.10. Condors sold Monday for 2.03 as a roll.
Expected move breached this morning so this is too risky to hold longer. Was able to get out near break-even on the bounce. I’ll let the 2830/2850 call side expire.
$LABU BTC 2/15 51.5 call and STO 2/22 54 call at .16 credit
This seems like a stretch but I will watch closely
$FB BTC 2/1 152.50 call and STO 2/15 165 call at 9.70 debit but would gain 12.50 if called away.
#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.
#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.
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.
Now just sitting on my hands until next week. Wish I had time to trade /NQ this morning, that would have been profitable.
Have a great weekend 🙂
#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
#supercharger all I had left for in this tiny IRA.
QQQ 22 DTE 150/155 for 4.53. Will have to manage if we drop more.
