Thursday, Jun.08, 2023 – Trading Options – Daily Journal


9:30am-10:00am: Started the day buying SPY Puts for quick +50% cash flow and flipped into NVDA Calls for great cash flow. Took some TSLA stock longs but I was heavy on those shares so I bought some PUTs to hedge a bit my position and took some losses there, but the stock long at 9:30am on chatroom, more than paid the hedges losses!

9:32AM – SPY Jun 08 $427 Puts from 0.95 to 0.92 for -47$ PnL*
9:34AM – SPY Jun 08 $427 Puts from 0.88 to 1.35 for 504$ PnL*
9:34AM – TSLA Jun 09 $217.5 Puts from 0.98 to 0.9 for -92$ PnL*
9:36AM – TSLA Jun 09 $217.5 Puts from 0.85 to 0.75 for -135$ PnL*
9:39AM – NVDA Jun 09 $390 Calls from 1 to 1.45 for 438$ PnL*
9:45AM – TSLA Jun 09 $217.5 Puts from 0.6 to 0.45 for -276$ PnL*
9:57AM – SPY Jun 08 $427 Calls from 0.55 to 0.85 for 519$ PnL*


10:00am-12:30pm I lost some money on TSLA hedges and on SPY QQQ Put scalps as I got a bit too soon on the fade, but patience got paid later.

10:19AM – TSLA Jun 09 $222.5 Puts from 0.95 to 0.75 for -234$ PnL*
10:45AM – GOOGL Jun 09 $123 Calls from 0.67 to 0.9 for 327$ PnL*
11:14AM – SPY Jun 08 $428 Puts from 0.7 to 0.65 for -87$ PnL*
11:22AM – QQQ Jun 08 $352 Puts from 0.55 to 0.45 for -202$ PnL*
11:25AM – SPY Jun 08 $428 Puts from 0.6 to 0.5 for -191$ PnL*
12:28PM – IWM Jun 09 $187 Calls from 0.75 to 0.72 for -55$ PnL*


After 12:30pm: I shorted big QQQ with Put 353 for +150% gains and NVDA Puts for +50% gains. So basically got back all the money from early losses.

12:35PM – QQQ Jun 08 $353 Puts from 0.6 to 1.5 for 1510$ PnL*
12:48PM – NVDA Jun 09 $375 Puts from 0.59 to 0.9 for 507$ PnL*


End of Day PnL = +2,486$ gains


End of Day emotions:  Today I did a little bit better with stock than options as I lost some money on TSLA hedge but the stock got paid big time. NVDA Calls were great but closed a bit toon soon and stock kept going up. The scalp on QQQ fade was a beauty for +150% gains, so overall I’m very happy. Trading is very hard but with risk management, a trading plan, focus and resilience, its great! I’m very happy with my risk management and trading plan. Need to keep my focus and repeat the process over and over again!
