    Several of you informed me that your $TNA long puts collapsed. C'mon man! You butcher the cow when it's fat- not a bag of bones.

        Added to $TNA LEAP short puts today. (My idea of exposing my inner bull). I'm hedged, of course. Happy hunting all!

            Example: already closed the $TZA short calls at objective.

                If you follow me, please note that I often take 20% gains. With this level of vol, possible to enter/exit 2-4 times daily.

                    Leaving small cap (-)calls in place. Selling $TZA calls (NOV 22 20 strike). I love the smell of good ol' reliable fear with cup of java.

                        I'm shocked! I thought TSLA stood insulated by the holy trinity! Where are the normal bulls? Can I still retire before 30?

                            We've had a decent spike in small caps-NOW you can consider selling calls-careful with your stock basis-

                                Already hit profit target on short $TZA calls-small cap spike a bit more energetic than anticipated. Reload? Sure-on spikes.

                                    Selling NOV 22 $TZA OTM CALLS. Assumptions: (a) a brief rally will zap premium, and (b) odds favor scaling at current price/time.

                                        Funds selling small caps hand over fist-that's why I suggested keeping $TZA hedges in place. Nearing 52wk low yet again.

                                            Small cap activity continues to raise issues re enthusiasm. Continue to hedge. S&P should race past 2000 IF mid-terms suit market.

                                                But, I still don't see any real zest for small caps. If you sold the $TNA puts, hedge with/trade some $TZA shares (de facto covered calls).

                                                    Short $TZA calls I suggested recently paying off big today. The $TNA (-) put play yesterday also looks good-but holding that a bit longer.

                                                    • convoluted: Sept 25-I think. I've traded in/out quite a bit. Here it is-yes Sept 25th.

                                                    • convoluted: Re the TNA LEAP puts, yes, bid/ask generally wider on most options-but significant premium. Look at TZA calls/shares to hedge some risk.

                                                        Will be interesting to see if small caps can hang on to a small bounce. Inches short of 52wk low. Sold LEAP TNA puts earlier.

                                                            Small caps poised to take out 52 week low. Another session or two like this will do the trick.
