2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 09

Despite the market volatility our SPX PCS and CCS strategy performed well. We were building cash income to offset the rolling of our put trades and that worked well so far. A few of our trades expired for a profit, some trades were losing ones but we generated enough income to cover those losses. Last Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 08

Last week was difficult to trade SPX spreads. As the market was dropping and speeding up in declining, I started reversing and adding credit call spreads to neutralize the put spreads and collect premiums to offset the cost of rolling the puts. But the market reversed sharply and rallied hard on Thursday and Friday and Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 07

Another difficult week is behind us, yet our SPX trading showed nice profits and growth. But it is not as rosy as it may seem from today’s report. We have a few put spreads in the money we will be rolling and these rolls will generate losses. Yes, we are selling credit call spreads to Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 06

Last week’s market was horrible. The new rally was rejected and the markets lost yet our SPX strategy gained. The gain is however in danger if this market continues freaking out about already known things (nothing that sent the market down was unknown). If the market continues lower, we will be adding call spreads and Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 05

The market is truly treacherous as some people out there say. The SPX went down hard just to be bought back the same day and erased all previous losses. Trading in this environment is extremely difficult. That’s why I am happy to have my strategy trading SPX credit spreads. It is based on combining several Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 04

January 2022 is over and our SPX strategy once again outperformed the market. The market was horrible last week, full of volatile zig-zag moving and losses. However, it seems that the market found support at the $4,315 level. If it holds we may see the market moving up and that would prop our SPX strategy Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 03

What a week! And a month! SPX got hammered though not as much as Nasdaq. We are in a stage where investors are dumping everything now. Even good quality stocks. I guess margin calls are hitting them hard so they have to liquidate even good holdings in their portfolios. Last two weeks, I was rolling, Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 02

We finished the second week on a down note. As the market was extremely choppy, we had to close a few trades for a loss and we skipped pretty much all trades except our Friday trade because all signals were negative. We finished the week down -10.49% while SPX lost -0.30% only. However, our account Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 01

The first week of 2022 didn’t start well yet our SPX strategy performed satisfactorily last week. FED released its FOMC notes and apparently, the notes said something different than what investors could hear at the FED conference talk. So the market sold off. Our signals turned negative and we reversed some of the put spreads Continue reading →

2021 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 52

The last week of the year 2021 was still positive with a bull market intact for our SPX trading. Also, our indicators were bullish, so we opened new trades although these trades are now in the money (not all of them, just two of the most recent trades), we think they will recover because the Continue reading →
