Weekly: French election rally

Mon French election results set off a world-wide stock market rally. I came in underinvested with a lot of free buying power. I added longs, mostly selling puts at the 7% probability line. I don't want to take on a lot of risk if the rally evaporates.

Sell SPY Jun 215 p 52
Sell IWM Jun 123 p 43
Sell BRKB Jun 155 p 75
Sell QQQ Jun 122 p 34
Sell AAPL May 157.5 c 12
Sell UNH Jun 155 p 51
Sell to close AAPL May 130 p 22 for a 85% loss on this leg. This was part of a put tree ratio, long the 130 puts, short 2x the 120 puts in ratio. Originally it was a bearish bet, but I hedged to near delta neutral after the stock held firm.
Tue French connection rally continues. I add more longs, going way out on the probability curves.
