Friday 30 Oct 2020 Morning Notes

Keeping with tradition, left a ton of cash on the table in the MRVL 36.5 straddle. Second guessed myself when IV dropped, and was half asleep thanks to kids waking me up early, so I decided to bail for a minuscule profit.. then watched as the position just absolutely ripped. Ugh!

Thurs 29 Oct 2020 Morning Notes

Wish I held that GLW straddle! Damn hindsight, instead of being down a small loss I could have been up on a massive gain. So it goes! Flipped a solid straddle in the ADP 155, as Lemmy from Motorhead once sang "You win some, you lose some, it's all the same to me" #AceOfSpades

Wed 28 Oct 2020 Morning Notes

Took a knock on a GLW straddle that I went large and in charge on, got punked on a tight range move in that one at the start of the day, only to see it hit lows of the day just prior to the close. Damn hindsight.

Tuesday 27 Oct 2020 Morning Notes

Looked like plenty of people were selling the weekly TWLO 260 puts, kinda makes sense given the recently released guidance.

Monday 26 Oct 2020 Morning Notes

Busiest week of earnings season on deck. Left some real $ on the table in a COF 80 straddle, flipped it for peanuts because it wasn't moving much, then watched it sell off hard throughout the day. Typical! Tacked on a bunch of OTM ratio spreads in SNAP, looking for a continuation move this week. Got paid to put them on, so I'm not worried if they go nowhere.
