Despite the Sturm und Drang of the markets as the U.S.-China tariff war heats up, my six positions remain within their profit ranges. The options positions are all short iron condors with the short calls and puts set as close to a 20 delta at entry as the grid would allow. The stock symbols corresponding to my options positions, with links to the analyses, are CGC, IYR, UNH, XBI, XLB and XOP.
Note the weekend post on the Implied Volatility Rank metric.

Tim Bovee, Private Trader tracks the analysis and trades of a private trader for his own accounts. Nothing in this blog constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell stocks, options or any other financial instrument. The only purpose of this blog is to provide education and entertainment.
No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
