SPX trades

#SPXcampaign Sold $SPX May 17th 2775/2800 call spreads for 1.55.

SPX trades

#SPXcampaign Closed on GTC order: $SPX May 4th 2810/2835 call spreads for .20. Sold for 1.45 on Apr 5th.

Closed Apr 25th 2680/2655 put spreads for 9.70. Sold for 5.65 yesterday. I had to step away for a few, and that’s when the plunge happened, just before I failed to get a fill on a break-even order. Now I may have gotten out on the lows. My ability to trade these short-term near-the-money spreads has totally sucked since early March. I was killing it with them in February and it got my confidence up, so the market had to affirm who’s daddy.

SPX puts sold

#SPXcampaign Looks like early March all over again… a multi-day rally cut short by the volatility of 2018.

Sold $SPX May 17th 2535/2510 put spreads for 1.60.

Looking to already close the short-term put spread I sold at yesterday’s close. I thought the bounce yesterday looked decent and would lead to a stronger morning. Not the case. AAPL is not helping the overall market.

SPX roll

#SPXcampaign #Rolling Sold $SPX Apr 25th 2680/2655 put spreads for 5.65 after the bell, as a roll from the spread stopped earlier.

SPX puts stopped

#SPXcampaign I love these short-term reverse rolls when a rally starts, but of course they only work with a sustained rally… since January, sustained rallies haven’t been happening. Thus, got whipsawed on this one, albeit without much damage. Stopped out when we started dropping for the third time, and of course, that led to the strongest bounce. Will likely roll into a condor later, depending on how the day shakes out.

Closed $SPX April 20th 2690/2665 put spreads for 5.35. Sold for 4.35 as a #ReverseRoll on Tuesday.

#SPXcampaign Sold the long April…

#SPXcampaign Sold the long April 27th 2745 call of my spread at 3.80. This gets me out with a cheap dinner profit. I didn’t want to get greedy. Personally I feel lucky it worked.
