10/4 – 3:30 p.m. New York time

I made three trades on Wednesday, exiting my position on PEP for a profit and rolling forward my positions on SPY and TLT.

10/4 – 2:45 p.m New York time

I have rolled my SPY position forward, collecting the premium from the old position and selling a new position for potential additional premium. I shall update the analysis shortly but shall reserve calculating results until the entire series is complete.

10/4 – 10:00 a.m. New York time

I have rolled TLT forward to a new position and exited PEP for a suboptimal profit. I have updated the TLT analysis and shall update PEP’s shortly.

10/3 – 6:55 p.m. New York time

It is likely that I shall roll forward TLT on Wednesday. Otherwise, I have no prospective trades in sight.for the day.
