Should have stuck with the original plan to add more puts near the top. Would be up more with the market dipping at close today.

Need to stop deviating from the strat.

Currently +25% on the puts and -18% on calls.  Exited on calls and plan to sell puts when we dip lower today.

Bah, slightly heavier on calls though - need to stop deviating from the original plan.

Missed the dip down to 125 while walking to class... Bah, could have sold puts at 40% profit.  Going to see if we dip again later today; otherwise I'll cut my losses.

Stopped out of puts at 126.  Loaded back on calls <_<
Going to add puts back in at end of day or near 127 to reset my straddle.

JCOF also building up the last few days.  Currently at $.36 - potential run if it can clear $.38 on good volume.

Picked up some SPY puts at SPY 126.24; little earlier than expected but resist seems pretty strong from 12/2.

Picked up the rest of the puts at 127.10; gotta stop breaking my strat mid-day and listen to myself.

Averaged down on calls yesterday to lock in gains on puts; probably should've just reset the straaddle though as a lot of value got lost to decay.

Calls hit around 125% today and puts got wiped to 0.  Was going to sell at SPY 126.30 but found out the broker automatically put in an order to market sell all my calls at about 125.98.  Shouldn't even be legal - there was about 15 minutes left before close (the auto-sell order was put in at 3:37 EST).  Bah, no more holding options so close to expiration.

Picked up 45x calls for DMND instead when the stock was at $39.  Market is right at resistance, so I'm just going to play individual stocks until we get more direction.

JCOF also just broke out on nice volume today.  Currently $.42, already 16% up from Wednesday.  Next resist is about $.50 and then $.65.

Very nice pinch setup on GMCR if anyone wants to play a straddle on it with next week's options.  Leaning on the long side personally but it doesn't hurt to cover both sides just incase the market crashes.


Haven't been trading lately because of finals.  Lips Sealed  Hopefully not too busy with holidays coming up but we'll see.

Very sharp pinch coming in on GLD.  Leaning bullish on this one.

Nice gap yes? Smiley Up 85% on calls and down 50% on puts.  One of these days I should just go towards the "leaning" side and avoid the hedging but I feel like that'll bite me.

Picked up some SPY 126x calls for the end of the month.  Just watching the daily chart here and looks like it'll at least test the upper end of the channel again.  No hedging this time - going to see if picking the expiration far out enough avoids being killed by decay if we get a pullback along the way.



Also thinking of getting January puts when we do get to the upper bound.

Pullback just as forementioned.  Added more calls on the dip.  Very nice that the later expiration didn't decay much.  Should probably do this from now on as the decay previously has been adding into the costs whenever I buy end-of-week expiration.

SPY at 125.  Up 60% overall now.

I still see resistance near 126 right now, but I might get out before then. If we move up slow enough, the downward trending resistance will hit under 126.
