-----------------
Trying to understand the thought behind this trade...
Referencing your post--above...
You are looking at a break-even of $14.46 as workable when the stock is around $21--need another +25% drop just to BE @ expiration?

Will you take profit or loss early? Do you have "written" rules?
================================================================================

On most short term options I take profit at 50% or less depending on the type of option trade, DTE, stock movement, etc.. So vertical spreads are around 50%, butterflies or iron condors around 30%, etc. I will even close out an option if its getting close to expiration for a few dollars profit as tastytrade only charges $1 per leg on open and 0 on close.

I dont have any written rules. Ive watched almost every tastytrade video they've made and learned from them.

As far as any of the Leap options I own...... I am absolutely convinced that there will be a world wide recession/crash/slow painful fall, within the next 6 - 18 months. So those are long term holds for me (long term being 6 months+) until the time is right to sell them. I've been buying them in different industries that I think will be hurt the most, at prices that I consider very cheap for how much they will pay off if Im correct.

I also buy a cheap vix call every month as a kind of insurance against black swan type events.
The world is so awash in debt beyond anything imaginable, the ending is not going to be pretty.

Pa247,

Sorry for being a pain... is it possible to add 3 items to your post?

1.The price of the stock.
2.Reasoning why the trade is placed. A sentence or two.
3.Expected profit exit and loss exit.

This will provide more detail for those trying to follow your trades and reasons.

ok. I can do that.

Any LEAPs that are in 2021 are because of this "As far as any of the Leap options I own...... I am absolutely convinced that there will be a world wide recession/crash/slow painful fall, within the next 6 - 18 months. So those are long term holds for me (long term being 6 months+) until the time is right to sell them. I've been buying them in different industries that I think will be hurt the most, at prices that I consider very cheap for how much they will pay off if Im correct."

The monthly VIX options are this: " I also buy a cheap vix call every month as a kind of insurance against black swan type events. " When the VIX falls below 12-13 I buy a cheap call for a future month.

I cant go back and edit anything so when I post new I'll include the info.
