Monday's Outcomes

The market declines on the first trading day of 2016 -- let's agree to call it China Panic II (the sequel) -- presented opportunities to exit and roll positions expiring in mid-January.

I exited AVGO and DE, each for a profit.

I exited the short legs of time spreads on ASMLNFLXNXPI, TSLA and VZ, each for a profit. I intend to roll the shorts forward to later expiration dates after the markets have stabilized from Monday's sharp declines.

I exited the GOOGL vertical spread for a small loss and intend to roll it forward ounce the markets stabilize.
