Some House Cleaning

When I started to track the results of Option trades on this site, I did so by reflecting each position according to their Expiration cycle, not based on when the position was closed.

- Initiated a November RUT Unbalanced Iron Condor position on Tuesday for a net credit of $1,555. As explained in the previous weekend analysis, under the current circumstances, the Unbalanced IC seemed more advantageous than the typical Elephant I usually deploy as the second income position of a month.

- Initiated a small November SPX 2425/2420 Credit Put spread on Thursday. New credit collected of $250. The idea is to mitigate potential losses on the Call side of the November SPX Unbalanced Iron Condor.

Last week I also mentioned the possibility of adding either an October RUT or SPX Credit Call spread to complete Unbalanced Iron Condor with existing October Put spreads but the credits were terrible and not at all attractive. The markets did not reach an overbought extreme either, which decreased my confidence in deploying such spreads.

- Closed Call side of October RUT/IWM Unbalanced Elephant on Monday at a $400 loss. The Put side is still in play and should yield maximum profit, turning this Elephant into a small winner in the end.
