Expired Options -SPCE

Since i bought shares of SPCE at $38,i have been writing covered calls for the stock to recover some losses. So far  I have written 3 covered calls and all have expired.

SPCE $58 CALL SELL 2/28 this  netted me $340 as the option expired.
SPCE $43 CALL SELL 4/17 this netted me another $15.
SPCE$35 CALL SELL  5/8 this added  another $43 in premium .
All these calls helped me recover $398  and exactly another $1400 to recover either via stock price or options.
I will keep writing these covered  calls as long as they make sense.
These trades helped me understand options little better and i am looking at writing covered calls for some other positions in my account.

Recent Buys -AVGO(Fractional Share),DFS

Recently found out that fidelity is now allowing fractional share buying.This will make it harder for me use to robinhood after the recent Outage.I am considering of moving my shares from Robinhood to Td Ameritrade  for consolidation . One less account to worry about.

so to try out the fractional share buying i placed 1 orders of AVGO and 1 fidelity fund (FXAIX)

avgo

vfI did it using the App and it was smooth.

Also added 1 share of DFS at $64.63 today. Trying to average down from 76.02.

Nice to see new features added in fidelity account.

Expired options -SPCE

I have always wanted to try and learn options ,been reading about them and was willing to try ,Finally i bought 100 shares of SPCE   on Feb 20th for 38.05/share. On the same day i sold an covered call for $3.4/contract  to sell 100 shares at $58  with an expiration date of 2/28.

Initially i  wanted to try with discover shares in my IRA account in TD ameritrade but was denied .

Now this a speculative buy ,that i have been doing since last month ,I bought  and sold TSLA,SHOP etc.

Now since the Market has  tanked since i wrote the call i Kept the  money $340  as the trading price didn’t even cross $40 ,but my investment is in loss since then.Yes I recovered little bit by writing the call.

I have been  trying to see if i could  do T or Another SPCE call in future.
