And at the close, no fills on my three live trades. Tomorrow…
3:20 p.m. New York time
My short iron condor orders on GDXJ, XLY and XOP have yet to be filled. I shall leave them active, allowing any unfilled to expire at the close. Any fills, I’ll post the analysis after the closing bell.
My managed shares positions are all in uptrend mode on the Directional Index Indicator, so I am continuing to hold.

I’ve placed an order for a short iron condor on XOP, asking for a $0.38 credit. The shorts are $24 on the calls and $18 on the puts, and the longs are $27 on the calls and $16 on the puts.
12:50 p.m. New York time
I’ve placed an order for a short iron condor on XLY, asking for a $1.27 credit. The shorts are $125 for the calls and $111 for the puts, when the long wings at $129 for the calls and $103 for the puts.
10:45 a.m. New York time
I’ve placed an entry order for a short iron condor on GDXJ, asking for a $0.95 credit, structured as a short call at $49 and short put at $38, and a long call at $54 and long put at $34. So, it hits the 18 delta for the call and 20 delta for the put.
