Jul/Aug SPY Put Calendar spread

Today I entered a 197 strike Put Calendar spread using July/August options:

This is essentially a Vega positive trade, that benefits form an increase in volatility. Along with the 191 Put Calendar spread this creates a 191/197 Double Calendar.

If SPY keeps going straight up and hits 200 I will be closing the whole thing for a small $120 loss.

    Hey LT, I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out! I haven't traded many calendars, but they've always been really interesting to me. Your trading with the commentary will add a lot of value. Thanks.

  2. Thanks Dan.
    Yes, definitely trickier positions to manage. Been studying them for a good while now and feel more comfortable with real money. Thanks for dropping by my friend.

    Cheers,
    LT
