#SPX1dte Expiring: $SPX Feb 24th 3790/3810-3945/3965 condors, sold yesterday for 1.25

#SPX7dteLong This one would have been an ideal candidate for a double-dip profit, but I sadly did not close put side on yesterday morning’s drop. Condor purchased for 16.40 last Thursday…

Sold to close 39056/3885 put side for .50 at 47 minutes before closing bell.
Letting call side expire… Hopefully will be at least 10.00 credit.

#SPX7dteLong Suffered a full loss yesterday (16.75) as I clung to the trade in hopes of a drop into the close. After that, not going to wait on today’s condor which could also end up in the dead zone.
Sold to close $SPX Jan 20th 3815/3795 put spreads for 4.80. Condors bought for 15.80 last Thursday. I think there’s the possibility for a strong rally today provided inauguration goes smoothly.

I have the same strikes expiring t0day and I totally botched the exit. I didn’t think we would bounce this strongly, so I sold off the call side for 1.00, and then the put side dropped. My only hope is a significant pullback into the close.

I also failed to sell the long put side I bought for cheap for the #SPX1dte… think they got up to about 2.00, but was unfortunately not able to be at my computer at the crucial time… and again, thought we would go lower.

No big worries… this strategy still working strong in long term, despite hiccups in last couple of weeks.

SPX trades

#SPX1dte Actually going LONG this time, due to possibility of Congress passing stimulus. Was considering RiskReversal, but if they pass and Trump refuses to sign, could be negative reaction. So long on both sides

Bought to Open $SPX Dec 21st 3565/3585-3760/3775 iron condors for .70 (broken-wing because I’m 15-wide on call side.). I don’t think this has much chance, but a cheap play.

I have an order in to buy a Nov 6th condor for 18.35. Volatility and premium are high so I won’t get filled unless things calm down into the close.

SPX trades

#SPX1dte Sold to Open $SPX Nov 2nd 3045/3065-3360/3380 iron condors for 1.10, SPX 3254, IV 26.9%, deltas -.06,+.05. Volatility is finally giving me a proper distance on the put side.

#SPX7dteLong Expiring at max credit of 20.00: Oct 30th 3390/3370 put spreads. Condors bought for 17.65 on Monday.

SPX 1-dte stopped

#SPX1dte Wow, three expirations in a row, Mon-Wed-Fri, stopped out! Pretty sure that’s the first time that has happened. Monday I held my breath and came out scot free… Wed took a 5.00 loss, today managed only a 1.30 loss. At least the #SPX7dteLong strategy is thriving in this volatility.

Bought to close $SPX Oct 30th 3215/3195 put spreads for 2.60. Sold for 1.30 yesterday.

SPX 7-dte

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Nov 4th 3300/3320-3335/3355 iron condors for 18.45. This is 15-wide, versus my usual 10-wide. I did it to get better premium, but it only got me about .15.
