Fumble fingers trade. I THOUGHT I was changing the limit price to 1:40, but somehow sent the order for 1.00. Some lucky sole got a great fill…but it wasn’t me J

Even IB felt sorry…and only charged me .39 commission.

Also closed 2 CC’s early (bought back LVS and RY calls) and sold a CC for AEP (an Assigned CSP). Transactions below.

The sale data on MO looks WRONG!! But it isn’t. It was actually a CSP that I sold (instead of buying MO) and then bought back for a nickle this morning when the market jumped.

Actual transactions below. Return is calculated on the net proceeds from selling the CSP less the commission costs for the buy & sell based on the $4750 “secured” part of the CSP (100 shares times the Put’s Strike), all adjusted for the time held (2 days). A lot of explanation, but very little work to earn the $31.42, but not nearly as much as I MIGHT earn if the PT was reached on an actual buy.

Sorry, just too busy yesterday and had brain fade.

It was a VZ Covered Call (NOT A CSP) that was closed for $.06. (Thanks to Tarry for pointing this out!)

06/05/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 19:03PST

Fridays are Roll days for CC’s that aren’t cooperating. Essentially you sell the one that has moved into the money, and buy one farther out in time or higher strike, or both. I also buy back any option that has time to run but has earned 80% plus of potential. With < $1.00 commissions it is affordable. Finally, had to deal with an Ex-Div induced assignment probability (TCAP).

It was a buy day but I didn’t have time time…

At the end are today’s action photos J

This is all realatively new process for me (in the TtP-S Portfolio, anyway) and is more subject to errors than usual.

TCAP was in danger of being called because of Ex-Dividend activity, so I bought it back, and will complete the roll on the next up day. The last line before total (below) is a FAUX sell of the position underlying to see where we stand from a “value” perspective, as well as my more normal “cash flow” view.
