2 p.m. New York time

My entry order for an iron condor on DIS was filled, for a $1 premium, own a penny from my original order. Full analysis coming up.

1:30 p.m. New York time

I returned to EA, which I had looked at on Tuesday, and found improvements on the options grid that allowed for a trade that meets my preferences.

I have entered a short iron condor position on EA, c+125 c-115 p-95 p+75, premium @1.60 IVR 53. Full analysis to follow.

12:25 p.m. New York time

I attempted to build trades for ASHR (IVR 51) and X (IVR 33), but both had insufficient premium to make the trades worthwhile. If I can manage DIS today, then I’ll take the trade. Otherwise, I don’t see anything else new on today’s horizon.

12:10 p.m. New York time

The attempted DIS position is the same as yesterday’s, with a slightly lower premium and higher IVR : c+135 c-125 p-105 p+95 @+1.01 premium, IVR 40.

12:05 p.m. New York time

I’ll be taking another look at DIS today, which failed to get a fill yesterday when tried to enter an iron condor position. I’ll also be searching out opportunities.
