Do seasonal tendencies apply to the T-bond, 10 year T-note and 5 year T-note?

In my experience they don't follow sesonals

My ES spreads are at 57 and 60% drop in premium right now. Because this is ESu futures expiration week and the tendency is for ES to peak on Thu and then drop on Friday I will probably exit late Thu and then wait till next week to reenter. We'll see if this works.

Option history database

Does anyone know where I'd find a good futures option history database for backtesting purposes? I'd need the open, high, low and closing prices. The subscription I have to USChartco has option history but it only goes back 1 year and I'd probably need 2+ years of data.

Ivolatility.com sells such data. I was always satisfied with their services.

On Aug 16 I sold ESx7p1960(2)p1710(3) for 2.95.

I exited today at 1.80. 29 days held. 1.7% ROI.

On Aug 23 I sold ESz7p1920(2)p1680(3) for 4.45.

I exited today at 2.50. 22 days held. 5.3% ROI.

I might reenter Fri late or Monday.

1. Reading the complete threads "Selling Options on Futures ?" and "Diversified Option Selling Portfolio".

2. Asking the questions which have not yet been answered in these threads.

Good trading !

Best regards, Myrrdin

In both trades you exited before reaching a 50% decay in the option price.
What lead you to get out of the trade? Do you have a specific ROI target?

Thanks.

Hedging with futures contracts?


Has anyone had any luck with hedging short ES puts by selling an ES futures contract?
