DERM - Selling Puts - Opened Limited Orders

DERM - expect volatility. Overall, bullish outlook. Could have significant swings. The options are so expensive right now it makes for an optimum to sell. I don't like either a credit call spread or any credit spread in this situation. Simply selling puts seems like the correct strategy. I've placed a limited order to sell 3/16 $25 puts at $5.6, mid ...

VXX - Bear Credit Call Spread

This is purely my trading journal, not investment advice. Especially with the screwed up and questionable nature of these volatility ETF & ETN created products, risk is even higher. Trading options of one of these products is buying/selling derivatives of an underlying product that is based on futures of a derivative. I closed my previous call spread. Took ...

EU - Quick trade

When you look at the charts, there are both a potential short and long trade set up for a short term trade. I preferred the short set up. For the long entry to be validated, need a 15M candle close above 1.22952 (breaking the double top on 15M). That also makes the short invalid. For the short to be validated, need one of the next 15M candle to close below ...

VXX - Bear Debit Put Spread

Used some of the income received from Credit Call Spread to pay for a Debit Put Spread. While I rarely used debit option spreads, I think this might be a good situation to employ this strategy. I choose the 2/16 options (9 days), which is a short time frame for a debit strategy. Initially, I thought 9 days would be enough time, but it maybe too short even for ...

VXX - Risky bear credit call spread

Opened bear credit call spread to hopefully take advantage of the high IV% and time premium. As long as market vol remains fairly stable for the rest of the week, I'll be in good shape. The very high time premium on short dated options means I am only at risk for a short period of time. It is atypical to be able to capture this amount of premium for options about ...

$78 Feb 9th Puts executed at $2.10 L.T. bullish bias. GILD at support level. Time premium very high especially considering only 4 days till expiration. If price is ITM and shares are exercised, my buy price is $75.90. I can sell calls at that time &/or do a swing trade. D: -.4623 G: .1295 T: -.1534 IV%: 65% (versus 37.8%) ...

L.T. bias is bullish. Currently at a support. This could be a good buying point, but price could easily break support and pullback to $19 - 18.6 area. M: https://www.tradingview.com/x/bWERAwdu/ W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/7NztqG0L/

Minimal time to post this trade. I'm short at .72748. Bearish price action at resistance area followed by further bearish price action. Charts below show well. There could be a fake out retest of resistance area. That happens frequently in over crowded trades like this. W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/226o3jUq/ D: https://www.tradingview.com/x/pXTSmrTc/

Unfortunately my last buy limited order was never triggered. You can see on the chart price went right to my buy point a few times, but due to the spread, it was not triggered. USDZAR is currently at a consolidation area. It has had trouble breaking out of 12.09 area, having a strong price rejection at that resistance area. That rejection could indicate a ...

There are multiple potential trading opportunities, but most are lower probability. And with multiple possible directions, it has the potential to create whipsaw moment. Sidelines is not a bad strategy at this time. I have a sell limit order currently opened. Price needs to break below 1.2337 with momentum for a pull back. If it doesn't, expect bulls to ...

USDZAR - Analysis of future trade set ups

My take...there is no valid trade yet. Potential trade set ups are developing. USDZAR's strong move down has paused, as it has before during this -19% decline since 11/13/17. Last pause was the recent consolidation. Possible developments, trades & key areas: - It could experience another consolidation period as it did during the last pause. If so, there ...

EURJPY - Potential retest R or push through before correction

The charts below indicate EURJPY could be prime for a pullback or correction. I imagine the bulk of the open trades are also short. I'm going against the flow on a more short term trade. I'm trading EURJPY to at least retest R zone if not push through before a retrace. I'm long @ 135.65; original SL was at 134.90, but I adjusted it to 135.11 to allow me to ...

I'm short @ 1.22397; SL @1.22749 This is most likely a trade that will develop next week. I was hoping for an intraday move to the support zone and take profits at that time. I might close the majority of my position (for a small gain) and loosen up my SL. 1M: https://www.tradingview.com/x/LNChe8qG/ Good move up, but getting into a fairly strong ...

I wanted to be more conservative since we are going into the weekend. 1M: https://www.tradingview.com/x/TK7hXrXo/ 1W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/Qcf7sjDo/ Last two completed bars failed ...

Didn't have time to post this yesterday (a long with some other trades). Initial entry buy @135.785 with a limit buy @ 135.72 (2x lot size of original), which was triggered. Net entry buy @ 135.741; SL @135.40 I entered this trade as a S.T. trade with larger lot sizes due to tight SL. This morning I took profits and closed the majority of my position ...
