#SPX 1-dte . Buying to close $SPX Nov 29th 3165/3185 call spreads for .80. Condors sold for .85 this morning, so (hopefully) the .05 profit will cover commissions. If it doesn’t fill, I will have to up my bid.

#SPX Morning. Been a while….

#SPX Morning. Been a while. Actually a long while. I’ve been getting the income portfolio set and deciding on whether and where to go next. Individual stocks, options, index spreads or even nothing at all. Spreads look to be the winner. Just can’t seem to master that swing trade / short term trade mind set. And rattling my cage, working in the garden, pulling weeds and walking the dog just doesn’t satisfy this old researcher’s mind. So I’ll see how this goes. Closed my two SPX call spreads, Oct 25th 3040/3050 and Oct 28th 3045/3055 this morning for 60% profits. Hopefully I can get WordPress to behave a little better using Firefox.

that gives me a 50% profit now, and the other half when it expires or is worth very little…

while I got the sell down after the fed conf I wanted, and a close below the 2260 gap-up yesterday, and a reversal signal in my indicators, I will wait for a continuation of the reversal to sell the 2290 short calls…if it moves up a lil before it falls, thats fine also..The bottom of the 2nd Gap-up window is 2245, the 38% retracement of this runup since 12/4 is 2242…if we close the window and break below the 38%, we have a potential 40 point fall zone…if not the 2285 Expansion level looms overhead…stay tuned..
