#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.

TSLA closed

Closed final batch this morning for .65… Feb 14th 550/1300 #ShortStrangles sold last Wednesday for 9.82.

Watching to sell another one, although premium has come in quite a bit. Need another large move or the excitement may be over.

TSLA closing

BTC $TSLA Feb 14th 550/1300 #ShortStrangles for 1.47. Sold for 9.82 last Wednesday. Holding one more per account until tomorrow or Wednesday, then I will look for another strangle.

When the stock peaked at 820 this morning, and the Feb 21st 1100 calls were going for 11.00. Then, when the stock bottomed near 750.00 a couple hours later, that option was under 4.50. So still, incredible swings in option volatility.

TSLA strangle

Bought to close part of my $TSLA Feb 14th 550/1300 #ShortStrangles for 3.467. Sold Wednesday for 9.825.

Probably will wait for Monday before closing more.

TSLA strangle

Yesterday morning I sold the $TSLA Feb 14th 550/1300 #ShortStrangles for 9.825. When the stock peaked around 780 today, these two options were about equal in value… despite the put being 230 points away, and the call being 520 points away! Stock action is indicating that the super crazy moves may be subsiding, despite the heavy skew to the call side. I’m looking to sell another one in the Feb 21st expiration, but I will likely wait until tomorrow. Would like to see this one get at least to 4.90 (50%) before I consider closing.

Since the price target is now $7,000 in 5 years, would love to get a long LEAP but the highest strikes are 1880 and going for 40.00-ish.

What have I done

This premium is almost as insane as the stock’s move. Finally jumping in; it’s hard to believe I can’t be confident in this trade!
