Karen the Supertrader - TastyTrade Hybrid Experiment

Discussion in 'Journals' started by Sweet Bobby, May 18, 2016.

  1. This made me laugh. It's probably easier (and in light of Karen's recent issues), that I just report YTD unrealized from April 5, 2016.

    You should start a charity/foundation like Karen and Woodie CCI...are you from the South?

  3. You're killing me! Yes I'm from the South! I live in Georgia but I've always claimed Alabama as home. Let's get that charity kick in'!

    Spreadsheet from first post hard to analyze. My question has nothing to do with Karen.

    With all do respect, am I ask you something?

  7. Stepan7, here's the link to my spreadsheet.



    It has two tabs at the bottom. If you click on the Net Liq tab I keep a running total of the Net Liq as well as a nice little graph of the net liq.

    Let me know if you have any trouble accessing the spreadsheet.

    What is running P/L ?

    Your current positions may have profit/loss. How it's reflected in the spreadsheet?

  10. Lots of activity in the experiment today.

    According to my mechanical parameters, I was time to buy back my

    SPY 15 JUL 16 206C(1)/206P(1) Straddle

    The trade made a profit of $45.

    My very first GTC order closing a trade at a 2X loss kicked in and bought the:
    SPY 22 JUL 16 224C(1)/196.5P(2)

    The trade lost $320.

    I did some delta adjustments and sold some calls:
    SPX 29 JUL 16 2170C(1)
    SPX 5 AUG 16 2175C(1)

    If my profit/loss targets are not hit, I will close the 29 JUL 16 call after 24 days, and I will close the 5 AUG 16 call after 29 days (for this one that will leave 21 DTE).

    I also bought a little junk SPY put for a nickel.
    SPY 16 SEP 16 85(1)

    My rationale was that since I made $45 from the straddle trade, I would spend about 1/10th of that on a long put.

    The experiment is up $315 for the day and up $1,729 since April 5, 2016.

    Theta is 224, delta is 75, vega is -1033, and gamma is -67.

    Happy Trading!
