NVDA

#ShortStrangles – Learned my lesson on BIIB. Playing my other short strangle cautiously since this thing looks to be getting some momentum here.

Was short the 512.5/535 @ 16.10

Bought back short call @ 12.20 and letting the put for next week ride with 3.90 of premium still available. Earnings on the 18th.

BIIB

#ShortStrangles – Wild move with the announcment of the new drug. Have to admit I didn’t know that was in the pipeline. Was short 220 puts against a 315 call (2 puts x 1 call). Closing the short call for safety and letting the short puts ride. Will look for new put sales to make up the difference.

Bought to Close BIIB NOV 6 2020 315.0 Call @ 24.25 (12.30 premium received so loss of 11.95)

#shortstrangles TSLA

It was a long time ago now I had an earnings strangle in TSLA. After rolling and inverting I have an April 17, inverted 300/450 strangle. It was just a couple weeks ago I was down about 60k on this. As the market has gone down, the short 300 call has been quite the hedge for my account. Currently, I’m down about 12k on the position which looks really good tonight. If someone only knew what would happen next, darn, no friends in the Senate.
