Adding Pioneer Natural Resources call options for January 18, 2019 at $180 to my Volatility Portfolio

I'm adding call options in a Permian Basin oil shale producer, Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD).

Buying call Nektar options at $90 for August 17, 2018 expiration in my Volatility Portfolio

When I started my rebalancing of my Volatility Portfolio on February 20, I thought I would add the slightly in the money Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR) calls at $80 with an expiration of August 17, 2018 at a closing price of $18.50. But the underlying stock has moved up so strongly since then that those calls […]
