Trade 1 - NFLX Bear Call
This was supposed to be a simple trade when we got the trade entry right. NFLX went down, and the Bear Call was immediately profitable. A Bull Put on the other side seemed safe, and the trade was converted into an Iron Condor and supposed to cruise toward expiry. A-ha..we had some surprises in store, but the trade worked out with a 14% return.
Trade 2 - CMG Iron Condor before earnings.
Gave a 10% buffer zone on either side.
CMG did not move much after earnings. We captured a 12% return the next morning or 80% of the max profit for the trade. Nice.
Trade 3 - AAPL Long Call.
Caught AAPL at a very good point before it made the big move up. Long Call converted to a Diagonal.
Captured $3000 profit, a 60% return on this trade.
Trade 4 - LNKD Iron Condor
Basking in glory from the CMG Iron Condor trade, we entered a similar LNKD trade.
LNKD blew through our Call spread by a mile -
But watch the amazing adjustments and how this trade ended.
Performance for the week - $7000, Return of 1.8% on the absolute portfolio.
