The VIX is holding above 20; we will wait until Monday to enter the next weekly trade.

SPX 6 month chart

Today, at least at the moment, appears to be a relatively mellow trading day. SPX is down a little over 3 points at 1916, and the VIX is currently 24.25.

Rather than taking on the weekend risk by entering the October 2 position Friday, we will wait once again and enter on Monday as long as the market is within reason and we can still get the minimum recommended credit.

Trade updates will be posted as appropriate.
