Weird day today with the sell off.. What prompted you to go ‘all in’ with the 20 options of AAPL at 12:59? The movement didn’t seem exorbitant in the prior 5 min intervals. And I noticed you used e-trade for that trade. Is it because you didn’t want any sort of glitch with RH? I bet it was a strenuous 30 mins there.. 😉 Glad it worked out.

By the way, I was caught in the TSLA call this morning like you. I initially bought 1 call and as the price continued to fall, I bought more and more to the point where I had 5. I was able to dump it about 30 minutes later for a small profit.. phew!

You’re correct, the movement was not especially volatile when I bought. In this instance, I used a combination of legs and percentage to execute the trade. It was due for a pullback, and it was likely going to retrace back given the lows for the day. There is always a minor retest of those lows. Yes, RH is much too glitchy for big trades like that lol. It wasn’t too much fun, but I’m glad it all worked out. The whole day was way too stressful!

Excellent work with Tesla and making a profit. It sounds like you averaged down very wisely. I was not able to average down as much I could’ve in Tesla because I was in Apple at the same time. I broke one of my rules by doing that. I usually only hold one position at a time to ensure I have money available to average down. So I trapped myself, which is one reason for the big losses. Lesson learned!

Not sure what you mean by “enabling” PDT. You don’t enable it, you become a PDT automatically if you go past the restrictions. But you can use your intraday balance everyday to day trade options even if you’re labeled a PDT.
