Mark Croock alert. Straight put, not a spread. Traded my own plan using the moving averages and pivots as my guide in the trade. Set risk to R/G. Profit goal at 4EMA on the Daily chart. Nice smooth trade, the stock got killed. Took my profits as planned when it was just about to hit the 4EMA on the daily.
Entry comments: PDS 44/45 expiry 09/17/2021. Max profit $150 max loss $50. Dark pool insights bearish below $46. Entered at $45.97. Goal is for price to get to $43 before Sept. 17th. Experimenting with buying verticals on Etrade for this one. $2 commission one way for the 4 contracts (2 spreads), and the fills were the same. I'll probably stick to Tastyworks in the future. I only pay $1 in fees round trip for 2 vertical spreads with them.
Exit comments: Didn't like trading verticals on Etrade, Tastyworks is a lot more simple. Tried to give this time, but it didn't really do anything, so I cut it.
Entry comments: PDS 37/38 expiry 09/17/2021. Max Profit $156 max loss $44. Dark Pool Insights swing trade - bearish below $40. Entered at $39.99. Goal is to drop to 38 or less by Sept. 17th. Tastyworks broker.
Exit comments: Gave it almost the entire time I had until the week of expiration. DAL was up and down and all over the place. It never really did anything, so I cut my losses.
SBUX SWING Entry Comments: CDS 120/121 expiry 09/17/2021. Max profit $234 max loss $66. Dark pool insights bullish above 116.50. Entered at 117.50-major level and very strong close on a FGD. Goal is for price to get to 122 before Sept 17th. Tastyworks broker for this one. Got a little greedy and didn't take profits at my $120 first target. Broke some support levels, so got out before I lost all profits. It took a while for this trade to even work.
XLP SWING Entry Comments: CDS 73/74 expiry 09/17/2021. Max profit $156 max loss $44. Dark pool insights bullish above $72. Entered at $72.14. Goal is for price to move to at least $74 before Sept. 17. Used Tastyworks broker. This one didn't work out-traded sideways and tanked a few times. Didn't reach any of my targets by the last week so I cut it.
Dark pool Insights bullish above 12.50. Looks like gold is making a move and silver usually follows, so I took this trade when it hit the bullish level. Seasonality is kicking in too. I am using a call debit spread strategy, risking $52 on this trade, max profit $154 if it works. Tastyworks broker for this one. Precious Metals didn't make the move I was looking for, so got out with a small profit.
CDS 455/456 expiry 9/3/21. Max profit $152 max loss $48. Dark Pool Insights Bullish above $451.25, entered at $452.50, 2nd TGT, goal is to hit $455 by this Friday. Tastyworks broker. Traded sideways all week. Waited until Friday for a pop, but it dropped, so I got out with a little bit of money before the options expired.

Exit comments: Went the wrong way all week. Decided to cut losses.
Dark pool whisper day trade. Picked Wednesday expiry and played a straight call on this bullish above 451.24 trade. Closed one contract at the second TGT and closed the second contract at the major price level of 152.50 at almost a 100% ROI on the last contract. Could have held to the last TGT, looks like it's going to hit it.
