#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…

Letting call side expire… Hopefully will be at least 10.00 credit.

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.
