24.09 Percent Profit after 5 Weeks

Another Week went by. So an update of the Value of my “Retirement Account” is due. If I would close all my Positions right now I would have €12,409, so my Account is up 24.09% after 5 Weeks. Not bad considering the fact, that it takes only 5 Minutes of work per week to do these Trades. I’m currently holding: +9 X CL Aug 2018 Future -9 X CL Jul 2018 Future -2 X CL Jun 2018 Future +2 X CL Jan 2019 65.5 Call Option +200 X VXX Shares -2 X VXX May 04 2018 41.5 Call I got the Jun CL Futures from the Assignment on Friday and will close them later today and trade them for CL Call Options.

CL 65.5 Call Options Assigned

Since there was no Seller, I couldn’t buy my 2 APR 27 65.5 CL Call Options back or better roll them over to the next contract. So I’ve just let them Assign automatically, which means that I’m now short 2 CL Jun Futures. This is not a big Problem, since I’m long 2 Jan 2019 CL 65.5 Calls. On Monday I will buy (cover) the CL Futures and sell 2 CL Monthly Calls. I’m currently holding: +9 X CL Aug 2018 Future -9 X CL Jul 2018 Future +2 X CL Jan 2019 65.5 Call Option -2 X CL Jun 2018 Future +200 X VXX Shares -2 X VXX May 04 2018 41.5 Call

12.57 Percent Profit after 4 Weeks

Another Monday and another Account Value Update. If I would close all my Positions today I would have 11,257 Euros (Net Liquidation Value), so my Account is up 12.57% or 1,257 Euros after 4 weeks. I’m currently holding: +9 X CL Aug 2018 Future -9 X CL Jul 2018 Future +2 X CL Jan 2019 65.5 Call Option -2 X CL APR 27 2018 65.5 Call Option +200 X VXX Shares -2 X VXX Apr 27 2018 41.5 Call It seems that there is absolutely no buyer for my CL APR 27 65.5 Call Options. I guess I will let them exercise at the end of the week. I will buy the Future back on Monday and sell another Option. The weekly CL Options don’t have the liquidity I was expecting, so I have to stick with monthly Options.

My Trades April 19 2018

Since I was holding my SPY Put and Oil is on fire, margin requirements were not met, so Interactive Brokers closed some of my Positions. No Problem at all. When I saw what happened I’ve closed my SPY Put and sold the CL Future again that IB closed yesterday. Instead of adding another CL Spread I’ve bought 200 VXX Shares and sold 2 APR 27 41.5 VXX Calls. The idea is to take advantage of the Time Decay. Will see how this turns out.

Bought 2 X CL Apr 27 – Jan 19 65.5 Call Calendar Spread

I’m taking advantage of the Backwardation in Oil. So I’ve bought 2 CL Apr 27 – Jan 19 65.5 Call Calendar Spreads for $2.80 which means that I bought 2 CL Call Options with a Strike Price of 65.5 which will expire in January and sold 2 CL Call Options with a Strike Price of 65.5 which will expire in 10 days. I will keep the one that expires in January and rollover the one that expires in 10 day. I guess I will let my SPY 265 Put expire worthless on Friday.

594 Euros Profit after 3 Weeks

So, another Monday and another Account Update. The Value of my “Retirement Account” is 10,594 Euros today, which means that my Profit is 594 Euros in 3 Weeks. Oil is up another $4 or something like that, since last week, so my Future Spreads are down quite a bit since last week, which doesn’t bother me at all. Will probable take 4-8 weeks until I can close them for $-0.20 On Wednesday I will rollover my SPY Puts. I’m currently holding 10 CL Jul/Aug Calendar Spreads and -1 SPY April 20 265 PUT.
