#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX Sept 4th 3500/3480 put spreads for 19.25. Condors bought on Monday for 15.90. There looks to be a small chance of a rally to 3480, so not risking it. Now I’m rooting for it so I can make some money on my call side.
Also, super proud for shorting the market near the low today. But I still actually think that will be a winner next week.

My put side are the same strikes as my #Supercharger bought earlier. Of course, call Superchargers have the exact same profile and risk as Put credit spreads. So I’m doubled up on the down side risk.
#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Sept 2nd 3460/3480-3490/3510 condors for 16.45, with SPX at 3483. The price on these went up about a buck after the VIX spike. It was in the mid-15’s this morning.

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Aug 21st 3360/3380-3390/3410 condors for 15.20, with SPX at 3382. Lowest price I have paid in this strategy. But if we are going to consolidate near the 3400 level the exits will get tricky.
#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX Aug 14th 3335/3315 put spreads for 1.35. Planning to close the call side today as well, but looking for a higher close.
Condors bought last Friday for 16.30. If we get a down open tomorrow this one will be flirting with the danger zone, so getting out today.

Not buying a #SPX7dteLong today… going to buy it in the morning, which seems to save me about a buck in price.
Expiring: Aug 12th 3350/3350 call spreads for 20.00 max credit. Condors bought last Thursday morning for 15.80.

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Aug 14th 3315/3335-3345/3365 condors for 16.30, with SPX at 3342.
Expiring: Aug 7th 3165/3185 call spreads for 20.00 DEBIT. This is the one I sold last Friday , but never had a chance to take profit as index only moved up since then. Sold last Friday for 18.95, closed puts for .05, so total loss 1.10.
#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX Aug 12th 3320/3340-3350/3370 condors for 15.80 with SPX at 3347. I didn’t buy the ATM spread yesterday because it was going for over 19.00. Wait one day and now it is the cheapest I’ve ever gotten on this strategy. Does this mean I should always wait for 6 days out rather than 7?
Also, BTC $SPX Aug 7th 3155/3135 put spreads for .05. This is for the lottery ticket chance of a major down day tomorrow, allowing me to close the call side for a profit without worrying about the put side. Condors SOLD last Friday for 18.95.
#SPX7dteLong I am not buying a spread for next Wednesday because, like last Friday, it is going for over 19.00. I don’t know why this is, as I was able to buy Monday’s spread for only 16.65, which is perhaps the least I have ever paid. I SOLD one on Friday, but that spread will be a loss unless we drop into Friday’s close. Friday is the unemployment report for July, so it could be a wild day.
Expired: $SPX Aug 5th 3245/3265 call spreads for max credit of 20.00. Condors bought last Wednesday for 16.85.

Expiring: Aug 3rd 3245/3265 call spreads for max credit of 20.00. Condors bought last Monday for 17.05.
#SPX7dteLong Although NOT long this time. When setting up this trade it was going for 19.00… the most I ever paid was about 18.40. I don’t know why it is so expensive but I’m guessing it’s because next Friday is the jobs report. So, I sold it instead. I will watch all week to look for an exit… I will not be waiting for the miniscule chance of a big win next Friday.

#SPX7dteLong This is the fourth trade in a row for this strategy where I’ve been faced with the danger zone at expiration. I have to make a choice as to whether we are going to finish the day higher or lower, and I chose lower. I am, however, notorious for making the wrong choice in these spots. So look for a higher close!
Sold to close $SPX July 31st 3215/3235 call spreads for 12.20. Already looking like I’m wrong as we have a small spike higher and this can be closed for a lot more now. Condors bought last Friday for 17.55. Looking for a further move down so I can close the put side for a decent credit. If I’m wrong then my loss is locked in.

#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX July 27th 3245/3225 put spreads for 13.10. Condors bought last Monday for 16.75. Too much risk of this closing near or in the dead zone, so locking in a 3.65 loss now rather than possibly more later.
#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX July 31st 3185/3205-3215/3235 condors for 17.55, with SPX at 3213.

My expiration for today looked like an easy winner and then we had the collapse. Now at mercy of the close.
#SPX1dte I didn’t place a trade for Monday. I was actually trying to place another bullish #Risk Reversal but couldn’t get filled before time ran out.

#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX June 8th 3130/3150 call spreads for 16.85. Condors bought last Wednesday for 17.10. I’m taking a small loss now on the possibility of a roll over and going negative. If we do that in the next hour or two I should be able to get some decent premium for selling the 3120/3100 put side.
#SPX7dteLong $SPX July 6th 3045/3065 call spread expired with full credit of 20.00. Condors bought last Monday for 18.05. I wasn’t able to place one for next Monday; will do it tomorrow.

#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX June 24th 3090/3110-3120/3140 condors for 18.55. I tried legging in but it didn’t help the pretty high premium on this, due volatility the last hour. Only partially filled on the call side so I will try to add the last contracts tomorrow.

#SPX7dteLong Missed my chance for small profit yesterday and instead sold to close $SPX June 12th 3200/3220 call spreads this morning for 1.20. Bought for 9.30 last Friday. As I commented then, throwing in the towel on the relentless bull run probably would mark the top.
I am skipping the #SPX1dte for tomorrow. Premium is not high enough for the risk.

#SPX7dteLong. Bought to Open $SPX June 12th 3200/3220 call spreads for 9.25, with SPX at 3192. Only going with call side this time. Which probably means I just called the market top!
#SPX7dteLong GTC order filled in pre-market: Sold to close $SPX June 8th 3060/3080 call spreads for 19.20. Will try to get a few cents for put side today. Condors bought for 17.50 on Monday.
#SPX1dte STOPPED: BTC $SPX June 5th 3160/3180 call spreads for 6.75. Condors sold for 1.05 yesterday. Even with expected job losses, I didn’t expect market to drop today. But certainly did not expect this explosion. I will not be selling call spreads as often in this environment.
#SPX7dteLong Sold to close $SPX June 5th 3040/3020 put spreads for .80. Looking to close the call side before today’s close. Want to avoid the possible volatility after tomorrow morning’s #Jobs report.

I realized today that I mistakenly SOLD my June 3rd 2990/3010-3020/3040 7dteLong condor instead of buying it (sold for 17.25 on Wednesday). So today I BTC the call spread for 11.00, and am now looking to close the put spread for 4.40 before the close.
Regarding today’s expiration, the sale of the 2940/2920 put side of my 1-dte condors yesterday effectively closed my long put spread of the same strikes I sold last Friday. So at the open today, I sold the May 29th 2960/2940 put spread for .85. That should expire with full profit.
#SPX7dteLong Bought to Open $SPX June 3rd 2990/3010-3020/3040 condors for 17.25, with SPX at 3019.
I did not close the put side of today’s condor. It went as high as 7.00 but I decided to hold it to see if I could get more. I had made 1.60 on the trade so it was a conscious decision.
#SPX1dte expiring: May 27th 2905/2925-30503070 condors, sold yesterday for 1.00.
