My $17.02 buy of SOFI doesn't look so good right now. Maybe double down tomorrow.

I did buy STEM twice and it rewarded, up 2.2% for the pair, up 4.7% for the second. Low price for the session occurred around midnight and I had just one good-'til order in place.

I went further in the hole on my SQ buy-write. The call is at $.03 but my $900 gain is dwarfed by $5,000 paper loss on the shares. I could write a $285 call for 8/20 expiration ($1.35 currently) and take my chances on next week. I think conventional wisdom would be to take the loss as a bad trade and move on. But, I don't mind holding SQ versus having more cash in the port.
