PYPL synthetic covered

#Earnings My long languishing Jan 2019 100 calls are looking better. Selling calls against them has been a bitch. Truing again:
Sold $PYPL Sept 21st 95 #SyntheticCoveredCalls for 1.10

Covered Call type of morning in PDX

Back home at last… slept well so keeping jet lag at bay!
#CoveredCallCampaign #SyntheticCoveredCalls Since I’ve been trading lighter I mostly only have long stock and long #LEAPs positions. Looking for new entries… who’s got something?

Wednesday I was over the Pacific without enough WiFi megabytes to trade, so fortunately the market didn’t do much.

Tuesday: BTC $SQ 75 calls for 1.55. Small loss. #StrangleRoll: Sold Aug 31st 73.5/78.5 strangles for 1.95.
Tuesday: BTC SQ Aug 24th 76 call for 1.16 & Aug 31st 76 call for 1.96. Breakeven combining the two.
Today: #Rolling Sold SQ Sep 7th 79 call for 1.55; sold Sept 7th 80 call for 1.50

Today: Sold $BABA Sep 14th 195 Covered Call for 1.50

Tuesday: Rolled $AAPL Aug 24th 202.5 #CoveredCalls to Aug 31st 205 covered calls, breakeven. Still underwater on this one but managing to creep my strike up.

Today: Sold $FB Sep 14th 182.5 covered call for 1.45.

Today: Sold $AMAT Aug 31st 43 covered call for .80. This #PieTrade is a stinker… not much premium to work with.

Catching up on posting from the last 7 days…

TODAY (Monday)
#CoveredCallCampaign
Sold $AAPL Aug 24th 202.5 #CoveredCalls for 7.00. This replaces the Aug 17th 202.5 calls I closed last week for 7.40, to avoid being called away on the ex-div date. I’m rolling ITM calls after earnings trade got breached.
Sold $SQ Aug 24th 76 call for 1.25, and Aug 31st 76 calls for 1.23

#SyntheticCoveredCalls
Sold $PYPL Aug 31st 90 calls for 1.10. A roll-up from Aug 24th 87.5 calls stopped last week.

#PieTrades
Sold $MU Aug 24th 53 covered call for .85. #PieTrades

LAST WEEK
#Rolling #StrangleRoll $TSLA Aug 17th 332.5 calls to Aug 17th 332.5/335 strangles for .65 credit. Will roll soon to avoid early assignment.

#Earnings Bought $YELP Aug 10th 38.5 #LongStraddles for 4.94. Sold the calls next day for 9.95. This trade usually works on YELP.

Stopped $FB Aug 24th 187.5 covered calls for 3.85. Rolled to Aug 31st 180/195 strangles for 3.83. Looks like I got stopped at the top. #CoveredCallCampaign.

#PieTrades Rolled $AMAT Aug 10th 46.5 covered call to Aug 17th 46.5 for .30 credit.

#VXXGame Closed $VXX Sep 21st 50 call for .46. Sold for 5.65 on April 17th.

Bulls ran me over

#Earnings. Quite a week for blind trading… Thursday’s bullish run looks good for my trades in $SHOP (#Earnings), $MRVL (#PreEarnings), and $NVDA (#SuperCharger).

But I’m under water with naked calls 330 calls in $TSLA, and #CoveredCalls in $AAPL and $SQ. I will have to roll on Friday. May require me to stay up late!

Today,
Closed $TSLA 260 puts for .06. Sold for 2.75
Sold $PYPL Aug 17th 87.5 #SyntheticCoveredCalls for .80.

AMAT roll & PYPL rolls

#PieTrades On Tuesday’s down open, I closed $AMAT July 13th 46 #CoveredCall for .57. Sold for .70 last week. It had been ITM so the pullback helped, and I planned to sell the new one on the bounce.
Took a couple days for the bounce!
Today, sold AMAT July 20th 46 call for .75.

#LEAPs #SyntheticCoveredCalls
Stopped $PYPL July 20th 87 calls for 2.16 and 88 calls for 1.50.
Sold July 20th 87.5 puts for 1.10 and 1.35.
Earnings on July 25th. I believe this one will consolidate or run higher from here into earnings. If it surges I may try to squeeze in some more short calls, or just wait for an earnings strangle.

SQ calls sold

#LEAPs Sold $SQ July 27th 68.5 #SyntheticCoveredCalls for 1.11. These are against my long January 60 calls.
