Bookkeeping: Adding SPY Puts - 122 November

So far a textbook day.  The cursory bounce came this morning as the "bullet proof" bulls showed up.  That move was faded... and now that the bulls see POMO 10:15 AM has not helped them, they appear to be in a slight panic.  What, there is risk in the market?  (EDIT 11:20 AM - reader says POMO actions today have been moved to 11:30 AM rather than 10:15 AM - so my thought process here is incorrect)

I was looking for the reaction after the predictable dip buying this morning, and it is negative.

I'm going back into SPY puts as a hedge - using November 122s and a 5% allocation.  This trade worked out twice for us this week, and I am going for the third time as a charm.  Indeed this could be a big one if we can break S&P 1200.  Otherwise I'll cover over S&P 1205ish to make sure I don't lose mad money.  A move to 1192 (200 week MA) or 1196 (20 day MA) would be peachy.

Long SPY puts in fund; no personal position
