Decision time approaching today – take assignment at 81 or realize loss of $11+. I think it will reverse slowly, once it settles at a bottom. The bubble has burst and a snap-back recovery, without tax reform, seems unlikely. Too many variables – I hope I’m not missing any?
#VXXGame Closed $SVXY Sept 15th 90 call for .40. This is the last call I had from the 100/180 strangles I sold for 18.95 back in March. I have one SVXY put remaining. That was sold as a roll, and I got out of most of it at decent prices. But I also rolled some into Sep 15th 77.5 puts, now underwater. #Rolling never ends!
#SPXcampaign #Rolling Sold to Open $SPX Aug 30th 2425/2400 put spreads for 6.00. This is a delayed roll from the Aug 2435/2410 put spreads stopped a few days ago. I’ll watch this one closely, or may ride it ITM.
Earlier, closed on GTC order: Sep 8th 2525/2550 call spreads for .20. Sold for 1.55 on Aug 7th.
Aug18//Sep15 $TRTN 35 puts @ 1.30 credit in TOS IRA acct. Share at 34.54
STO $TRTN Sep 15 35 puts @ 2.12 to replace same expiring Friday, or assigned in IRA Dividend account, 5.25% yield, .45 qtr div. Shares at 34.57
$AAOI Rolling Aug 18/Aug 25 70 put for 1.00 credit. Opened on Aug 15 for 1.90 credit, less 1.00 today CB 67.10 plus commissions. Planning on weekly rolls…

Standard Campaign Spread:
Sold Sep 8th 2510/2535 call spreads for 1.75.
Bought to close Aug 21st 2480/2505 call spreads for 2.20. Sold for 8.90 on Monday. This was an extra spread I threw on, and I decided to close it now in case we’ve seen the bottom. I have two spreads that were sold ITM and are now just OTM that I will watch as I don’t want them to fall back way-ITM again.
#Earnings #Rolling Sold to Open $NVDA Aug 4th 160 puts for 2.30. A bit more left to make up to get back to profit on this earnings trade. These expire before Aug 10th-ish earnings.
