Friday 28 Jan 2022 Morning Notes

Sold STX puts when stock spiked to 115 and pretty much instantly regretted it.. IV was marked somewhere around 150% and figured IV would drop, which it did, but it didn't drop faster than the stock itself. Quickly bailed on the short, which was fortunate as it would have been a 5x loser.. this is why I prefer long volatility strategies.. thankfully I trade small on the short side relative to my much larger long vol trades.

Thursday 27 Jan 2022 Morning Notes

I knew I was going to regret flipping that PTON put ratio! Damn thing hit $1.97 yesterday. Didn't do much by way of trades yesterday, tried legging into some ratios but to no avail.

Wednesday 26 Jan 2022 Morning Notes

My only trade yesterday was closing my PTON 27/22 1x2 put ratio for a small loss then closing out the PTON 21 puts I had sold short. Cleared a decent profit between the two and was really tempted to just leave the package on but wasn't a fan of all the short puts at the 21 strike. Made some cash on an AXP 185/145 wkly strangle, with IV ripping from the open, so I STO the strangle then BTC the strangle later in the day. Not my favorite trade, but liked my odds given the jacked vol.

Tuesday 25 Jan 2022 Morning Notes

The market has entered crazy times. Some wild moves out there that make little sense. Going to be an interesting few months ahead. Picked up a few of the Feb 50/42.5 1x2 put ratios in KSS should the reported deals fall through, cheap bet with a potentially massive payout. Also sold some of the wkly PTON 21 puts at 240% IV.. those could get interesting

No shortage of things going on this morning, going to be a busy one. Ate a loss in an ECL straddle on Friday when stock had gone nowhere before lunchtime, then watched as it went for +30% toward EOD. Cripes!
