#SPX7dte Well, day could not end worse with SPX almost precisely in middle of the Dead Zone. Had the chance to sell for over 17 near the open but wanted to wait it out for max profit of 20.00. A Screamingly bullish day denied me. So I sold put side for .90 and call side for 1.35 in the last half hour of the day. 4145/4165-4175/4195 condors bought for 15.40 last Thursday, so 13.15 loss.
#SPX1dte Expiring worthless: 4050/4070-4180/4200 condors, sold yesterday for 1.00.
#SPX7dte Sold to close $SPX Apr 14th 4105/4125 call spreads for 15.60. Still holding put spreads. Condors bought last Thursday for 14.95.
Don’t know what just hit the market but it has potential to kill my trade so I got out with small profit. Still holding put side and will hopefully get bit more for it, but as these things usually pan out, I probably sold at the bottom. I’ve been away from my desk almost the whole morning, but happened to be here at the exact right time to make a panic trade!

#SPX7dteLong. Thank you, Fed. Sold to close $SPX Mar 17th 3960/3980 call spreads for 13.00. Combined with the 7.00 I sold the put side for: total credit is 20.00. I had planned to go for more, but the spike went up too fast and I wasn’t able to adjust my limit order in time.

#SPX7dte. Forced to take a break here with too many losses eating in to what had been a 45% annualized strategy. I did not buy one for next Thursday.
Today’s flirting with expiring in dead zone. Looks like I will get some on call side.
#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.

#SPX7dte Sold to Close $SPX Dec 18th 3675/3695 call spreads for 19.50. Not a fun afternoon watching it drop, but I held in there and got lucky with the bounce. Put side sold earlier for 1.00, so 20.50 total. Condors bought for 16.55 on Monday.

My one-day condor is in trouble. Looking for a bounce to exit the 3390/3370 short put spread. #SPX1dte

#SPX7dte Unfortunate end to the day, put side expired worthless after selling call spread this morning for 5.60. Missed my chance to sell at lower levels midday…. it swung the wrong way for me after several good swings in the last couple weeks. Loss of 11.45.

#SPX7dte Sold to close $SPX Oct 16th 3530/3510 put spreads for 18.50. Condors bought for 16.20 on Monday. Too much risk of a surge higher into the close so taking more than half of the max profit now.
I plumb forgot to sell a #SPX1dte condor yesterday, but I will today for Monday and will post it in a comment under this.

#SPX7dte First time I’ve ended in the dead zone of one of these long condors. Got a dollar for the put side this morning but zero for the call side. My mistake was forgetting the Fed minutes were today, which meant I should have closed with a small profit before 2pm ET. Loss of 14.80.
#SPX7dte Bought to Open $SPX Aug 24th 3365/3385-3395/3415 condors for 15.05, with SPX at 3391. These are getting riskier with lowering VIX and consolidation, but they are also getting cheaper.
