Markets held 2700 support today

S&P PanicAs posted earlier I identified a support at 2700 level (or around) and today, the market held that level although the trend was gloomy. I expected more turmoil in regards to FED (which is still coming on us) and Trump’s tariffs (this still can come back and spook the investors who already crapped their pants enough this last two weeks).

For our funds, trading was slow today. I was busy with other things and also wasn’t in mood of trading. So I decided to skip it. I did only a handful trades today, and I bought a new dividend aristocrat to our portfolio


My trading was very slow today as I had no time to watch the market. We only opened one single new trade using SPX with tomorrow’s expiration and added a few new call spreads to the existing open put positions (see below). As Mr. Market is usually going to punish me for opening both sides of the options chain, I hope that by adding the call spreads the stocks will finally move upwards (which will be my call spreads punishment) but the things will finally move. At least I am already seeing a strong move in AMZN and one call side is dangerously close. I might be forced to convert that into puts and a never ending tail-spin can continue.
