This post covers today (no position changes) and yesterday (6-26-17, one opening trade).
Yesterday a few minutes after market open my portfolio was down about $30. Mainly based on SPY and BA going against my position.
Around 9am my option portfolio was down $40 dollars in value for the day and down $90 overall. At this point I thought ‘hopefully this sharp down move will do what the market has seemed to do the last 60 days and end up either back at $0 or slightly reverse in the last hour of the day’.
The portfolio actually reversed early and sharply to being positive $48 for the day. Here it is at 11am
I also opened the 217219 call spread for August 53 days away for $61. This makes my break even $217.61
The ceiling was almost off the top of the 3 month chart (blue line).
Here is how the portfolio ended up yesterday; +$82.50
I think it was one of my best days from the portfolio value gained perspective.
I was +$7 at 8:59, +$4 at 10:49 and ended the day up $50.
Now the options portfolio is collecting $514 in credit from 7 of the 8 positions; We have 1 debit spread in FXE with a long time work
Here is my current positions and greeks.
