SPY, Short @ $211 w/ Call Credit Spread

Still anticipating ranging markets. Opened a couple Bear/Credit Call Spread at $211/$216. I'm using a $5 spread because the R/R is better than $10 spread. Credit = $2.25 (net $2.14) Break even = $213.14 August Expiration* * I likely will not hold on till expiration. I would use a SPY price drop to take profits and remove the risk.

I don't do many of these, but since price is in my "sell area" and implied volatility isn't good for a credit spread, I'm doing a debit spread ... . Metrics: Probability of Profit: 55% Max Profit: $221/contract Max Loss/Buying Power Effect: $179/contract Break Evens: 208.21 Notes: I'll look to take this off at 50% max profit ... .

OPTIONS TIP: A DIFFERENT WAY TO WORK DEBIT SPREADS

Let me start off first my showing you the metrics for the posted setup. It's a May 20th SPX 1880/1900 long put vertical: Probability of Profit: 7% Max Profit: $1849/contract (if price finishes below 1898.47) Max Loss/Buying Power Effect: $151 Well, that just plain sucks. The probability of profit is a mere 7%. How am I possibly going to make any money on that ...

TRADING IDEA: FXE MAY 20TH 111/JUNE 17TH 113 LONG PUT DIAGONAL

I don't frequently put on debit spreads, but here's an instrument in which I have a fairly firm directional bias and which, additionally, has extremely low implied volatility at this point in time, making it ideal for either a calendar or a diagonal, both of which benefit from expansions in volatility (which will occur in the instrument assuming further weakness ...

A VXX SHORT SETUP

I virtually never short a VIX product. I am, after all, largely a premium seller and, as such, am already short volatility in the vast majority of my setups. So, by shorting a VIX product, I'd basically be "piling on" to what I already do. I also virtually never do debit spreads ... . However, with FOMC next week, I thought I would at least consider taking a ...

GOING LONG VIX VIA DEBIT SPREAD

Frankly, I don't use debit spreads very often, since they require a certain degree of directional certainty which I ordinarily do not have. Additionally, they are not high probability plays in the vast majority of cases. However, I have a certain degree of certainty that volatility will increase from here and, ironically, the volatility in volatility is quite ...
