I start the week out quietly then do more trades as the week goes on. I take a speculative shot on TSLA earnings, which doesn't work out. However, I do damage control and come out okay. On PCLN I got in after the gap up, and in the red for now. On some of the others I took a small position, selling way out of the money puts. I am up for the week, but as almost always, more would be better.

Here are the trades (c = calls, p = puts, all are third week expiration unless noted, sell means sell-to-open, cover means buy-to-close, number is price per contract):

Sell WHR Aug 175 p 48 new long

Buy TSLA call ratio spread: 
Buy TSLA Aug 240 c 319
Sell 2x Aug 250 c 143 each
