Bartune = sound mechanics

I was busy all week and could only really look at end of day. But rolling it to a straddle is not an issue. If I do this I usually change the profit target to a scratch (if it just runs on us like HD did) or move profit target to 25% max profit since I brought in more premium. Just the way I trade.

XLE should be good to us today yes. :)

Not a lot of vol out there right now. In 2017 there was always something to do and right now it is tight on everything.

Will manage at 40% max profit or manage accordingly.

I also did a similar trade on /ZB in my other account.

STO XBI Jun15 80 Put and 97 Call for a credit of 1.55

I'll manage at 40% or accordingly if it goes against me.
---------------------

This trade came into this morning at 40% max profit.

I'm still holding those DIS and XLE trades Bartune. I was just thinking this morning if they are close to scratches with 21 DTE or profitable I may just close them out. Vol has been crushed and it seems dysfunctional news is bullish for the market.

So interesting conversation, why do some charting programs show different data? Slopecharts are just ever so slightly different than ToS (both use log scale).

It has made me wonder over the years.

I use log scale on my charts so it will show different. Which one is right. No idea.

Russell new highs, probably need to cover my /ES short for a very small profit. I thought we'd get one more day out of it.

PM taken out to the wood shed and bloodied. OUCH! /GC resting on a trendline. Was this a flushing of weak hands. I guess we'll find out this week.

Bartune

I have you in XLE and DIS, please confirm.

I put in profit target orders as GTC for 40% and let them rest. If they hit a short strike I consider managing the trade. For instance we rolled the HD put up to the call strike or a strangle into a straddle (not that names matter) when it took off like a rocket. If at 21 DTE I am not profitable, I'll roll out. If I have a profit I'll close it and see if it warrants another trade and 'recenter/reset' strikes. May sound complicated but its not.

This allows you to stay in the game per se. Will you win or scratch them all, no. But you will have to determine that threshold of pain. I've been rolling XRT since November. All I need is a little down move and I'll be out for a scratch. I need about $1 back and my delta is -.81 in the trade. But in retrospect I probably should have taken a small loss on this one and redeployed capital. IV is low in it now. These types of trades happen every once in a while and rarely in ETFs. But they do happen.

I'm not perfect. :)
