Friday was like old times.. flipped a straddle on CAH from 1.15 to 1.95, only to watch it hit for 2.60 minutes later. Also closed an earnings trade.. bot a put condor on SBUX. It was trading around 109, so I bot the 108 puts, sold the 105 puts, sold the 100 puts, and bot the 98 puts. The package cost me 92cents, and I would only see losses if SBUX was >107.08 by opex. The stock gapped lower and I flipped it on the open for 2.10, then watched it expire for max profit of 3.00.. so it goes.
The real story which I didn't trade, was AMZN into earnings. IV was absolutely jacked and of course it went nowhere. I had considered buying an atm butterfly or straddle swap for that exact reason. Regardless, I'll be shopping for earnings gap trades going forward now. I think in certain circumstances earnings gap trades can make tremendous sense.
