– SOLD STRANGLE FDX 100 (Weeklys) 24 JUN 16 172.5/152.5 CALL/PUT @1.19
Here’s an earnings play. I could get right around double the market maker move and I don’t expect FedEx to move to much. Got filled right at the bell for a nice credit.

6/22/16 – BUY FDX 100 (Weeklys) 24 JUN 16 152.5 PUT @.61
What look like a perfect trade kinda fell out of bed. I took off the call side for free commissions at $.05 but then the stock crashed and pumped up the price of the puts so they went from $.20 to $.55 super fast. I should have taken it off as a package deal right at the open for a much better price but unfortunately the stock crashed hard at open. Stupid move on my part to try and save a little in commissions. Backfire! But overall a really nice trade.

Sold some premium in WYNN following a “Strangle” scan that you can find on my TOS workspace. %90 probability of expiring worthless. I like those odds.

– SELL STRANGLE VRX DEC 15 120/50 CALL/PUT @2.33
%90 probability of profit. =) Just got to hold between 120 and 50. I’ll look to take it off in a few weeks. My first trade on VRX. Spreads are a little wide but not to bad. It will probably be a loser for the first week…

Not bad. Just wanted to pull it off as a quick winner. %32

SELL STRANGLE M 100 NOV 15 57.5/42.5 CALL/PUT @1.60
Man I don’t want to do options right now,, but I couldn’t resist. It’s %100 IV and not near earnings. Implied volatility threw the roof. I couldn’t get filled at first so I drop the price one cent off mid price and filled. The trade never went in the red and I’m currently up %5 at the end of the trading day. I got $1.60 for it and that’s with a %80 probability of profit. Weighted to the down side a bit but that’s great cause if the price goes up it will flush out some volatility making the option’s lose value and if it goes down, well the call’s should lose value more than the puts will gain value with a -36 delta.  I think 52/53 will be a good settle down price for a couple weeks.

 

11/3/15 – BOT STRANGLE M 100 NOV 15 57.5/42.5 CALL/PUT @1.06
Got out today. Nice trade but man the stupid volatility kept popping back up for no apparent reason so what was a %50 winner became much less. Now with the earnings coming up, which also wasn’t apparent till today, I wanted to pull it off.

– SOLD STRANGLE SLB 100 JUN 15 95/87.5 CALL/PUT @2.21
SLB, like HAL, is finding a range. I put on tight strangles so as much as they take a little more risk I can bring down my contract size and hopefully make a little more money in the long run. I’m expecting my legs to get tested but I do think they will come back to my entry area.

5/26/15 – BOT STRANGLE SLB 100 JUN 15 95/87.5 CALL/PUT @1.45
Decent trade.  %49 profit.

– SOLD STRANGLE HAL 100 JUN 15 49/43 CALL/PUT @1.14
HAL and some of the other’s in the industrial group seem to be settling into their value area after their earnings a month ago. This probably isn’t the best trade but I’m gonna look to capture a little time decay.

 

5/26/15 – BOT STRANGLE HAL 100 JUN 15 49/43 CALL/PUT @.76
Just taking a profit before some shit goes down. %44 profit. I was a little worried about this one cause these indu. stocks can move fast.

– SOLD STRANGLE FXE 100 MAY5 15 108.5/102.5 CALL/PUT @1.28
Well, FXE ain’t looking to bad. The Euro is range bound but could move quick. I think it will stay right around this are for a while and maybe I can grab a little time decay. The IV Rank is huge right now and even the weeklies are in play.

4/27/15 – BUY STRANGLE FXE 100 MAY5 15 108.5/102.5 CALL/PUT @1.08
Call me a chicken shit. Pulled by legging out and following up the other side with a stop. Got like %15 profit after commissions. FXE has been scaring me and I’m feeling good about taking it off here.  It may just go straight up.
