Stock / Symbol: Direxion Small Cap Bull 3x / TNA;
Option Strategy: [/private_monthly]put calendar;
Trade entry date / price: Mar 18 / $88.30;
Price at this adjustment: $88.20;
Reasoning: Put this trade on with a downside directional bias. With the Russell 2k / TNA virtually unchanged since our entry, going to adjust the postion to a non-directional trade. Going to roll the short 84 strike put to next week's expiration and add a 91 strike May/MarWk5 call calendar. The addition of a call calendar will give us the following greek setup: 3.8 delta, 17 theta, and 18.5 vega. Keeping the downside stop at $84 and ratcheting up the upside stop to $91.75. Depending on when the stops are hit (days to expiration of the short options), we'll either close out the put or call side of the trade (or) close the entire position.
