What a wild week, where again, I traded too much.  That is why having a weekly post on Friday and having to be honest about every trade, really helps keep good habits.  Trade Less…Trade Less…. But still, a good week.  And we look forward to the week ahead.   

 

Here are the trades since last week’s update:

3/3 Long 1 SPY May 15 250 Put @ 2.84 closed @ 3.24  (12% gain  $ 40)

3/4 Long 3 SPY May 15 280 Puts @ 6.89 closed @ 8.49  (23% gain  $480)

3/5 Long 2 SPY May 15 190 Puts @ .33 closed @ .46  (39% gain  $26)

3/6 Long 1 SPY May 15 260 Put @ 8.91 closed @ 9.39  (5% gain  $48)

3/6 Long 3 SPY March 31 315 Calls @ 2.21  closed @ 1.98  (10% loss   -$69)

3/6 Long 1 VXX May 15 24 Put @ 2.08 closed @ 2.55  (22% gain  $47)

3/6 Long 1 May 15 20 Put @ .91 closed @ .77  (15% loss  -$14)

 

Total : $558    for the week

 

For the week ahead, I see a lot less trades and more targeted ranges for longer hold times.
