- Closed Call side of May RUT Elephant at a $688 loss on Wednesday. The Put side remains, now very safe, and with a total credit that is greater than this loss. So, it should be an overall winner but it just takes time now.

- The April SPX Elephant expired for max profit of $1608 on Friday.

- Also tried to get filled on a June SPX Elephant on Friday without success. I'll try to deploy this position on Monday.

- Closed the April RUT/IWM 1365/1375/1670/1680/168 Elephant for a $1392 gain on Monday. Overall, this Elephant was a loser as the Put side had been adjusted from 1450/1440 down to 1375/1365. I'm just reflecting here the gain that was obtained this week. This move was made in order to free up some capital, as explained in the previous Weekend Analysis.

- Initiated a May RUT Elephant on Monday for a total net credit of $1,420.

- Closed the May SPX 2240/2250 Credit Put spread on Thursday for a $900 gain. This represented 75% of max profits with more than 5 weeks to expiration. I had a closing GTC order to close and it got triggered while I was away.

- Adjusted the Put side of the April RUT Elephant. This resulted in a $2,800 loss. A new credit of $1,200 was obtained. The total credit in the position at the moment is $1,621 with less than two weeks to expiration.

- I intended to close the April SPX Elephant on Friday in order to deploy the second position of the May cycle. However, the fills I wanted were not possible. For this reason, the second position of the May cycle has not been deployed yet and the April SPX Elephant remains open.
