Jan 31 2020 Trades


Today I closed two trades including an spx 0 DTE (zero days to expiration) and both were winners. The first trade  was  SPX 0 DTE trade based the modified bollinger bands strategy  on 5 min candles, and the second trade was on PEP based on the same modified bollinger bands strategy but on daily candle. In this post I will try to explain the strategy used for these trades, and the same strategy that I use to share my trades on the free whatsapp group that I have which is open to anyone who would like to join.

Trade 1: SPX 0 DTE trade

In short for the modified bollinger bands strategy, I scan spx on a 5 min candles for 5 closes below or above a modified bollinger band of standard deviation of 0.382 a well as the 50 SMA. 

At 11:30 am central time, SPX 5 min candles came up on my chart by showing 5 closes on the 5 min candles below the modified bollinger bands and 50 sma. 

So I placed the trigger below the lowest of these candles and at 11:37am the trigger triggered so I entered a call credit spread  and I sent out an alert on the whatsapp group.

On these kind of trades on the 0 DTE spx trades I like to take profits at 50% and go on to the next trade so when we entered we collected 1.15 on the CCS and I set a GTC order at 0.55 with our stop loss being three times the credit received so in this case 3.45.

Today around 12:37pm SPX  went down  in price and our profit target was hit and we closed the trade for 50% profit and we sent the alert to the whatsapp group that we closed it in case anyone was following it thus making a profit of $60 profit per contract. 




Trade 2: PEP trade

In short for the modified bollinger bands strategy, I scan everyday the stocks for 5 closes below or above a modified bollinger band of standard deviation of 0.382 a well as the 50 SMA. 

On January 21, PEP came up on my scanner by showing 5 closes on the daily candles below the modified bollinger bands and 50 sma. 

On January 22 the trigger below the lowest of these candles triggered so I entered a call credit spread and I sent out an alert on the whatsapp group.

On these kind of trades I like to take profits at 25% and go on to the next trade so when we entered we collected 0.6 on the CCS and I set a GTC order at 0.4 with our stop loss being double the credit received so in this case 1.20.

Today around 8:37am PEP  went down  in price and our profit target was hit and we closed the trade for 25% profit and we sent the alert to the whatsapp group that we closed it in case anyone was following it thus making a profit of $22 profit per contract. 



Total Profit for Jan 29 2020 profits:

Trade 1: $60
Trade 2: $22


Total: $82 per contract.
