Saturday's Outcomes

For awhile as implied volatility market-wide sank to levels too low for trading with my short option spreads strategy, I used a long diagonal spreads strategy to fill the gap.

It did not turn out well in most cases. The attempts did, however, leave behind some zombie positions.

One such was a position in GM, which expired worthless. It was composed of long options left over from the a net short spread built from both long and short positions. Click on the symbol for full results covering the length of the position through its lifetime.
