This is one of those times when things seem bigger then they really are, SP not even up 1% on the week!  Best news is the volatility index has now filled its gap from last year moving under 18!  Be interesting to see how the close goes with no cash trading tomorrow and an employment report coming out!  Average short now an even 3980.  Gonna hang onto this one for a bit I think, great way to start the month.

Banking a 30 point ES profit
Will reopen later

Opened ES HEDGE LONG 3966.5

24 SPY PUTS.
38 VXX CALLS

Bought XLT in LT PORTFOLIO
WILL BUY MORE LOWER

22 SPY PUTS
36 VXX CALLS

Did not get filled in all 5 VXX CALL LIMIT ORDERS. WHO sold ONE VXX CALL?

Closed Es hedge long +60.25
2 extra lots on NQ LONG daytrades
Will reopen hedge later.

Seasonally bullish period.
Wildly swinging ST market behavior.
Profitable Tuesday.
Looking to end a great March with a profit ​or small loss.

18 SPY PUTS
35 VXX CALLS
ES HEDGE LONG 3912

Insane wild markets, either consolidating then grind higher or bubbling & fizzing at an IT or ST top

16 SPY PUTS
31 VXX CALLS
ES HEDGE LONG 3912
NQ SHORT 12852
Very hectic day ended with a small loss.

Positions from last week
Daytrading NQ until about 9:30pm

That ES HEDGE LONG  was quite timely, and with NQ daytrades, saved the day!
 
Great week, great month, want to trade with less risk for rest of month to make this the 3rd consecutive profitable month in 2021

 
14 SPY PUTS
27 VXX CALLS
ES HEDGE LONG 3912
 

hate to do this but is it Friday and I added more VXX CALLS and SPY PUTS so...
 
ES HEGDE LONG 3912 buy limit filled

Nice trade!  I knew we were going to go up just wasn't willing to play the long, rather add to my shorts!  Will be interesting next week!!

Couldn't resist that 4000 level now though, 3985 average short!!  Off to tennis may cover if we pullback we'll see and start another build, always love the round numbers!

Added to my short with the employment pop average short taking a big jump to 3994, tempting to add more to get it to 4000!!  Great number, why do they need the Fed lol!!
