SPX raised this week 0.67% is 1.59% up year to date. On the other hand RUT is 0.33% up for the week. Our portfolio is 8.667% up before comissions waiting to add some positive returns when August cycle is officialy over at the end of next week.
We, as options sellers, tried and got filled in two out of the money spreads this week while the markets tumbled near support. So on 12/08/2015 trades SPX Sep15 1850/40 PS at 0.45 and SPX Oct15 1775/85 at 0.50. All well out of the money bellow 10 deltas.
So currently open positions are all over 90% probability of ending out of the money, though we still got lots of weeks ahead and no one knows the future.
Getting technicals on the markets lets see how the $VIX raised over 16 to shrink again.
$SPX was just 11 points of July lows, and 200 EMA help the price to bounce up again.
If we take a look to Oscilators we still are in no man's land as no extreams are yet pointed.
$RUT could not break once again 1200, and got a minimum in the week at 1889. I'm expecting to see this index lower on coming days.
