6/16 – 3:15 p.m. New York time


I exited FB and KRE for a profit and NFLX for a loss, and rolled AAPL and QQQ forward to a later expiration. This completes my exit from positions that expire next Friday, June 23.

6/16 – 3 p.m. New York time

I have exited NFLX for a loss.

616 – 1:30 p.m. New York time

I have rolled QQQ forward to a position expiring June 30.

6/16 – 10:35 a.m. New York time

I have rolled AAPL forward to position expiring June 30 and shall update the analysis shortly with details.

6/16 – 9:55 a.m. New York time


I began the process of cleaning up positions within a week of expiration. I have exited FB and KRE for a profit but below my target price. I am attempting to roll forward by a week NFLX, which is showing a large loss, and QQQ, which is marginally profitable; the orders have not yet been filled so I may change my mind and go for a full exit.

I shall update the FB and KRE analyses with results shortly. I have taken no action yet on AAPL, which also expires next Friday.

6/15 – 7:40 p.m. New York time


I have no new positions in sight for Friday. As the weeklys expiring June 23 enter their last week of life,  I shall be considering an exit of NFLX as a position having a significant losses, as well as KRE with a small loss and AAPL, FB and QQQ with below-target profits. Some of the closures may be held over until early next week.
