luvb2b_express trade slowly picking up momentum. i rolled mar20 spx calls down to 3500 strike. it's been fun trading index options lately as cash settlement prevents having to forcibly exit positions that are expiring. on those the commission savings is about 95%: meaning, if i had to do 2000 spy calls as 4000 round turns to open and close, i can do the entire trade with only 200 spx options, and may only need to execute the opening side as the closing side will cash-settle. another nice feature of the index options has been that i can always hedge with another cash settled index option, and not worry about closing that either. for example:

if i am carrying a large 3130c position overnight, i may hedge with a 3140p position, and i don't ever have to worry about closing either side.
