I had a death in the family and funeral over the weekend, therefore have not had time to put together a “proper” trade update..
Basically, I am still in all the positions and no adjustments have been made since Thursday AM. I have personal trade rules that act like a circuit breaker in this situation and did not “allow” me to move these positions on Thursday once the crash started. These same rules have parameters on what I should do the following day (on Friday) depending on what the market does, days till expiration, how much money the trades are down (taking into consideration the volatility loss) and where major support levels are located. The market stayed in the range of the previous day on Friday and was near a major support level so nothing was done. On Friday afternoon just before the market closed, I had one trade that was past max loss, the May method 1. All other trades were still down less than max loss. After the market closed, the T+0 line sagged quite a bit so the losses in the pictures look worse than they were with the market open. The positions are shown below.
