Weekly: short covering

A nice 2% up week for the stock market has me scrambling. I cover four layers of SPY calls for big losses as the rally unfolds. The rally in DIS and TSLA is getting uncomfortable close to my mental stop levels. I initiate a new long in DPZ Dominos Pizza, a new short in MON Monsanto.

Here are the trades (c = calls, p = puts, weeklies denoted by W suffix, W1 is week1, sell means sell-to-open, cover means buy-to-close).

Tue Big rally today. I came in net short. I cover some SPY call legs for big losses.
