Option Journey #21



As ETSY has been down for the past few days, I wanted to go back to ETSY for a few days. It was top at $198, now is around $180. It went down to the $170 level and bounce back up. For that reason, I had confidence that It will not go below the $160 level, therefore, I made a larger spread with it. Generally, I go with the $5 spread or less, but in this case, I went with the $10 spread for it. If I am wrong on few days, I will close out the trade due to too high of the spread or I will roll down even further month out to mitigate the risk is losing the money in this trade. When the stock price hit's $170 mark, I will decide whether I will close it or roll it down for the next week depends on how many days left.


The second trade I did was a RIOT. It is directly related to the cryptocurrency. It holds the majority of assets in Bitcoin. Others they hold as cash. It is a very small company, but it contains really high volatility. It is around 170 vix at the moment. For that, It is a 50/50 shot that I will make money or lose money in 8 days. I am Risking $1300 for a $760 gain. If I am right, I will get paid $760 vs if I am wrong I will lose $1300. As long as bitcoin is this bullish, I believe it has a higher chance of success. I might do leap call in the future for this stock, but it just went up too much today.
