Bought 50 SPY AprWK1 puts for 0.59

I realized that I bought puts (rookie mistake) when I wanted to get calls (and the timing was perfect). So I have just dumped the puts for 0.45 and bought 50 calls 155.5 for 0.61

Edit: There must be some delay with the CBOE quotes, because I bought these puts yesterday almost at the very bottom, but when I checked 5-10 minutes later when the market bounced back, the position was up 800-1000 bucks. So that's why I didn't realize right away that I got the wrong stuff, because that much gain was expected from the calls....

Sold at 0.52

It does look like there is the 15 minutes delay, so in the future I have to use the originally planned, indicating a trade first and executing it 15 minutes later trick to be honest....

Account: 38.8K so these 3 last trades (2 winners, 1 loser) made about 1.2K

Since it doesn't like it is going to make it there, sold for 0.16

Note to myself: use in the money options on expiration day.

Salvaged only $700 of it. Should have switched to long after yesterday was a doji, meaning consolidation before further upward movement...

I am going here big or bust, bought 2 more puts:

100 Spy MayWk2 163 puts for 0.45

100 Spy May13 163 puts for 0.92 ( we give this a week more to work)

There is a huge gap left behind what I expect to be filled in the next few days....
