Fb looks good

Etsy getting crushed after hours.

I’ll see how this plays out tomorrow. Looks good so far

re: Calling all Traders
Nice call on ETSY. That one looks promising for you. I had the other bearish trade with a 60/65 call credit spread. This is a good demonstration of how two people can have two different trades on the same underlying and both make money.

SBUX 87.5/91 call credit is looking OK - after hours and pre-market could change that though. LYFT 48.5/52 call credit is looking safe. All expiring 11/1... while I’ll be on a plane.

Dumped some 11/15 TWTR 31.5 calls on right at closing. That was the other side of a strangle I’ve been trying to get in place for a few days.

re: Calling all Traders
Glad we were on same side with Etsy. Not sure why it’s tanking bc they beat in several areas? I haven’t had a chance to look closely though

re: Calling all Traders
The beating continues. Down about 12% last time I looked. ETSY met expectations and had positive guidance. Imagine what would have happened if they’d missed or had light guidance.

dag nabbit..

i didnt even notice $OLED...they been a reliable for a double digit drop every quartet.


i have option/lotto plays onpen on $aapl, $fb, and $twlo.

going long on etsy stayed too pricey for me (but then chased on twlo and overpaid the long side)


edit: long= buying (not selling) puts&calls




After Close

$AAPL +2.07%
$FB +4.81%
$TWLO -10.70%
$ELY +0.82%
$LYFT +1.68%
$ZNGA +3.86%
$ETSY -9.38%
$OLED +15.46%

re: Calling all Traders
Lots of jumping beans to keep up with this week.

I dropped a basket of 11/1 PINS 29/31.5 call spreads a few minutes ago. Now I’m done for the week.

I went directional on every trade this week. All have worked out (so far). Sad to say, but when I bat 1000 on 15 or 16 trades in a row, I get a little nervous.

re: Calling all Traders
I still have my pins long 27 jan calls open. Got out of the etsy trade earlier for a nice profit. Will close the fb vertical call tomorrow.

Won't be making any more for the week. Will research sunday and place orders monday morning for next week earnings.

re: Calling all Traders
I am also long 130 nov zts calls. Earning Thursday before open.

Uber got crushed AH. I sold some Jan puts at 36 on them a couple months ago. That isn’t looking so well but still plenty of time left in that

ETA: related to Uber it seems that investors are moving to solid companies that are turning profits and more established. Some of these recent ipos are in line or beating are still dropping 10+%. One of the reasons I have the puts on roku

re: Calling all Traders
I missed Ferrari (RACE) while on vacation... watching Ferrari race. Had the direction right too! :(

Need to take a gander at SQ today. ROKU is a toughie. A wide strangle or iron condor maybe... Do you have a feel for that one?

re: Calling all Traders
Looks like long puts or short calls were the way to go on ROKU. I went short 170 calls. Crashing as I type. :)

I’m short 67/71 call spreads on SQ. Haven’t seen movement on that one yet.
