I found some spare change that I used to add CROX to my Momentum Portfolio, for a $41.23 debit.

I’ve updated my TLT analysis with results.

No stock trades today.

10:50 a.m. New York time

Today is management day for the JAN monthlies, 21 days before the January 17 expiration.

I exited my short iron condor position on TLT at 50.7% of maximum potential profit, a bit more than my 50% target. My short iron condor position on XLY remains unprofitable, so I’ll continue to hold it, exiting at the first sign of profit, no matter how small.

I’ll post the TLT results in detail later this morning.
