08:34am: “Morning focus on SPY IWM QQQ TLT AAPL VIX for clues going into the FED statement at 2pm and Mr. Powell speech at 2:30pm. Manage risk wisely on very risky and tricky events.
Morning Trades: I started the day fading AMD and NVDA with PUTs for great cash flow and where I got my money. I gave back some money on choppy action on DIS AAPL and trying to fade BA but I cut my risk fast so overall nice action.
Loss review: I gave back some money on choppy action on DIS AAPL and tried to fade BA but I cut my risk fast so overall happy with my risk management.

Look Ahead: I’m waiting for the FED to trigger the next move, so staying in cash and looking for cash flow either up or down.
