  1. mid-week trade updates: sold $JCP on trail stop hit on 1/8 so Jan 22/20 Collar becomes a Bear R/R. sold $HLF Jan 35 Call, remain S the Jan 40 Call with a L stock pos as a hedge. $GPS is closed. moved the Jan 11w 60 Call on $MOS to the Jan monthly, will leave the S Jan 11w 62.5 Call to expire. $ORCL called away so the straddle sale trade is now closed.
