        $XRT stc Mar 90 puts @ 1.95. Small consolation on day like today.

            $XRT heads up on short through puts trade, looking for entry end of DEC or early Jan on a pop.

                $XRT may have missed opp to short today's highs through options. Won't chase it here. Best to wait 'til end of year, or just pass.

                        $XRT sold Jan 88 puts @ 1.31. Cost basis 0.90. Out of the position.

                          : Might look into revisiting this trade end of year, March expirations...better entry, depending on what's up at the time.

                            $XRT still holding on with Jan 88 puts. Technicals look to be in my favor with possible H&S, but SC rally a threat.

                              : Decay into possible SC rally, if IV dropped would have been zero fun. Big time adrenaline.

                                    $XRT added to Jan 88 puts today, cb @ .90. No Feb options. This is a hairy position, playing against the house with clock ticking.

                                      : perhaps money will flow away from retail mid December to other sectors, but that's a promise to no one.
