Day 12: 5K to 1 Million - Holy Shit!steemCreated with Sketch.

Day 12:

Another quick update today.  Since I am still on vacation and cannot monitor the market closely, I followed through with yesterday's plan and closed out the SPX PUT legs once the market opens and started it's huge bounce.

Here is what I did:

By closing the position out for 0.45 premium, I was able to lock in the profit and avoid the potential of losing money if I am not able to monitor the market and SPX heads back down.

So the entire traded ended up being a good and safe trade as follows:

Opened Iron condor on Sept 30 for 1.00.  After commissions = $92 

Then I rolled the PUT legs from Oct 2 to Oct 4 for 0.45.  And then CLOSED the position today for 0.45 to lock in profit. 

So this ended up being a 9.2% ROI trade in 5 days. 

I will take this kind of return any day!

Aside from having a winning trade, what can I say about the market but...HOLY SHIT!

What a bounce!

The SPX went from as low as 2855 all the way back up to 2950! 

That is a 95 point bounce in just one day.

This means the upside energy has pretty much being exhausted, and setting the stage for me to make another Iron Condor trade on Monday and capture even more GAINS.

I am leaving Montreal and heading to Quebec City tomorrow for the 2nd leg of my vacation.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!
