#SPX1-dte As another short term trade, replacing call spreads closed Friday,
Sold $SPX March 17th (weeklys) 2890/2915 call spreads for 2.95.
Also, closed today’s 2790/2770 put spreads for .30. Hovering between 1.00 and 4.00 all day, finally got out. I had to close the call spread at Friday’s close, unfortunately; it would not have been a concern today!
#SPX1-dte Sold $SPX Apr 24th 2900/2875 put spreads for 6.95. Aggressive ATM position in response to minor upside warning that fired Friday. If index has not moved higher by Wednesday, I will consider rolling.

When all was said and done, I lost $419 on this batch of spreads. I bought back the 2760 calls on a breach early in the morning. It dropped soon after and never went ITM again. These trades continue to make the case for price staying within EM most of the time. Gotta stick to my rules of adjusting on a breach. Only lost about one day’s profits. Back to work tomorrow.
Closed Feb11 put spreads (8) and call spreads (4) spreads for .05 each. Total credit $450. Total profit $390.
