Twitter Update #10

Aug 10


TWTR rallied hard on Monday with the overall technology sector closing up nearly 2.5pts at 29.63. This moved formed a large green candle on the daily and could be a sign of a reversal.

To take advantage of this move, I had a few trades in play. I sold the short call strike, although I could have taken in more credit had I waited intraday. I didn't think the move would be so large. The short call expires this week.

I also rolled the put strike up from the 27.5 to 29 strike in two separate trades during the day. This could have been done in a single trade.  I wanted to capture as much of the move upwards as possible to improve the P/L of the position.
