Sell SPY Aug 140 puts x2
Buy SPY Aug 145 puts x1 SPY@160.7
I add some bullish exposure with a third short put backratio. The way I like to do them is for a net credit, delta positive, theta positive. While it is a net long position, there is a big profit on a decline to the 140 to 145 area.The stock market appears to be rolling over.
These backratios profit on a modest decline, but there is the chance for huge losses if the market crashes.
I continue to avoid bonds TLT and gold GLD. I am not nimble enough to catch the small moves, and the risk reward still isn't compelling for selling option premium.
