TMO crossed my stop loss.

music selection:  “The Dark Of You” — Breaking Benjamin

On 14DEC2020, I entered a bull call spread in TMO at the 470/480 strikes and 19MAR2021 expiry for 4.85 per share.  It looked like a sure winner at the time but the trend has reversed.  Today, my 50% stop loss was breached so I sold for 1.45 per share.  I book a 2,720 loss over 81 days on 3,880 capital at risk.

With the market nearing correction territory, I am de-risking where I can take profits.  Two in the money calls were purchased on ABB on 4NOV2020 at the 15 strike with 11.05 pricing.  I sold today for 14.30 a share, booking a profit of 650 dollars on 2,210 at risk over 120 days.  I sold two out of the money puts on HSY on 26MAY2020 at the 115 strike for 12.40 collecting 2,480 in upfront premium.  I closed today for 2.95 a share, booking profit of 1,890 over 282 days.

Altogether, my P&L for the day is minus 180 dollars.  Unless I can close my long VXX puts at a significant gain before month end, March will close with a net loss in options of 258 dollars.

Devour your prey raptors!

Throw in the towel TMO, book gains ABB and HSY

Sharing is caring!

Never miss another opportunity to devour prey!
