... to the Dec 23rd 130/135 for a .25 credit. I previously rolled to the Dec 16th expiry with the intention of setting up an iron fly there by selling a put side against. Unfortunately, I set up the short put vert (which I sold for .43 cr) in the Dec 23rd expiry, so at that point, I had a weird ass setup -- a Dec ...

ROLLING: IWM DEC 9TH 127/131 SHORT CALL VERT TO DEC 16TH 128/132
After having taken the short put side of this "troubled" iron condor off for near worthless (.05), I rolled the call side out another week and improved the spread by a strike. I filled this for a .57 db, and tomorrow I'll look at selling a setup to finance this roll and then look at its scratch point ... .

VIX: FOR THE NEXT POP, LADDERED SHORT CALL VERTS
The last VIX pop around elections, I chose to piddle with an SVXY ATM short put credit spread (see post below). It worked out great, but SVXY isn't the most liquid thing in the world (I knew that going in). In comparison, VIX options are about the cleanest short volatility setup you can get, although a small ...

BOUGHT TO COVER SPX AUG 19TH 2015/2025 SHORT PUT VERT
Although I still have a little bit of time on this, it's too little time to effectively roll the short put side up of this setup here without pushing it in too tight to the call side for my taste, so I'm closing the put side out for a .10 ($10)/contract debit here and leaving the call side to dangle for a bit. As ...

BOUGHT TO COVER SPX AUG 12TH 2100/2115 SHORT PUT VERT
With 4 DTE left in this troubled post-Brexit setup and the short put side nearing worthless, I bought to cover it for a .15 ($15)/contract debit, rolled out the short call side from the Aug 12th 2145/2160 to the Aug 26th 2155/2175 for a .55 ($55)/contract credit, and sold a 83% probability of profit short put vert ...

TRADES TO MAKE IN PREPARATION FOR A BREMAIN RESULT
I don't trade news, but this is an event whose outcome I think is now relatively certain (Bremain) such that it might be worthwhile to take a small position to take advantage of the relief rally that will occur if that is the result. Naturally, I could be totally wrong on the result, but the probability of a ...

ROLLING (AGAIN): SPX JUNE 24TH 2130/2140 SCV TO 2120/2135
With a mere 9 DTE to go with this setup, this is probably the last roll I'll do here to capture movement and/or delta balance ... . Filled for $150 credit ... . Notes: Actually just noticed that I inadvertently widened the spread by $5, which is probably why I got $150 out of it. Lol.

ROLLING SPY MAY 27TH 208/212 TO JUNE 10TH 209/213
More housekeeping ... . With 4 DTE and this 30 handle upmove, this is one of those "too close for comfort" rolls. Truth be told, I'll probably end up rolling it again if we don't come off of this 208 level with some vengeance, but only time will tell. In any event, I got a $40/contract credit for the roll ... ...

BOUGHT TO CLOSE SPY JUNE 3RD 212/215 SHORT CALL VERTICAL
With only 14 DTE left for this particular iron condor, I'm pulling off the short call side at near worthless (a $5 debit) rather than rolling it toward current price. (The call wing was worth $45/contract, so closing it out here nets me $40/contract). I'll keep an eye on the short put side (196/200) as expiration ...

SOLD RUT/IUX APRIL 8TH 1100/1110 SHORT CALL VERTICAL
After closing the short call wing of my original iron condor, I rolled out the short put wing down one strike and out one week to the April 8th expiry to give it a little more room and a little more time. I'm just matching that rolled out side with a new call wing to hedge, resulting in an April 8th ...

With this little down move here, I closed out the short call side of my RUT/IUX iron condor -- the April 1st 1120/1130 short call wing. The short call wing of the iron condor was worth approximately $166 in credit/contract when put on as part of the iron condor, and I closed it out today for a $40 debit, ...

GLD -- ROLLING OF SHORT CALL SPREADS
Several weeks ago, I iron condored GLD on the notion that we would see some resistance around the 111 area. The short call spread of that original iron condor was 111/114. I stripped off the short put side at near worthless and also added to the position with a GLD 115/118 short call spread. Needless to say, 111 ...
