Monday 30 Jan 2023 Morning Notes

Friday's day of trade was a bit like some old school trading for me.. Flipped 3 different straddles for decent bucks. Flipped the CHTR 405 straddle, the OLN 59 straddle, (sold far too soon on that one!), and I bot the NOC 435 straddle w/2hrs left in the trading day and flipped that for some quick cash.

This will be another relatively busy week with earnings. We'll see how this week goes. All I know is that this January is starting off a lot like my January of 2022, absolutely killing it. However, I mostly spun my tires in the sand for the remainder of 2022, which was incredibly frustrating... but my options trades still outperformed the overall market by a wide margin.

Friday 27 Jan 2023 Morning Notes

No trades of note yesterday, daughter was sick so my attention was elsewhere... BBBY skip-strike put ratio spread is looking solid after the 34% stock drop yesterday. Absolutely can't believe people go long that stock with a straight face.

Thursday 26 Jan 2023 Morning Notes

My only trade yesterday was an ISRG straddle flip for peanuts that washed out a FIS March 70 put that I had flipped for a "peanuts" loss.. I bot it on Friday looking to fade what I suspected was an overly ambitious bid expecting a deal on Monday. When the stock didn't drop as much as I expected, I looked to bail on it. There wasn't much IV risk in the FIS put, so no complaints on the trade and I would take it again.

Wednesday 25 Jan 2023 Morning Notes

My only trade yesterday was more short calls on W, this time the weekly 89 strike which was going for IV north of 200%. Playing with fire but had to call b.s. on it.

Tuesday 24 Jan 2023 Morning Notes

I was in a jam for time yesterday so no blog post, my only trade was short W 65 and 70 calls on the stock pop and IV rip.. My BBBY 3/2/1 skip strike put ratio is up +30% now, I really liked that trade but lament how difficult it was to leg into.. Really wish it were easy to trade setups like that in larger size more easily
