SPX 1-dte

#SPX1dte. The market was so volatile before the close I waited until after the close to sell this.

Sold $SPX Aug 26th 2735/2755-2915/2935 condors for 1.30. IV 17.82%, SPX closed at 2848.

SPX smackdown

#SPX1dte. Didn’t follow my rules rigidly enough and waited too long to close these. May mean I got out near the bottom rather than when stops were first hit, when I could have gotten out when SPX was around 2888.

BTC $SPX Aug 23rd 2860/2840 put spreads for 5.60. Condors sold yesterday for 1.10.
BTC $SPX Aug 26th 2845/2820 put spreads for 6.75. Condors sold Wednesday for 3.15

I went past my stops on Wednesday on the up side, when SPX just couldn’t get any higher after briefly touching 2930. But the call side premium is much lower when almost ATM on expiration day than put side is, so it’s less risky. That one expired worthless. This one may, too, but after missing fills on every bounce before this, I couldn’t risk another tweet-driven violent drop.

Closed Aug 21st 2900/2925 call spreads of ra loss at 12.00. Sold for 5.00 last week. Let this run too long, but at least a pullback came today. A weakness in my strategy I must address.
