Stock is just acting too strong. Not much extrinsic value left in the weekly. Total loss is $224, which isn't too bad. This is why your position sizing is so important.

With the stock up today I'm rolling the short weekly put down and out to the Aug 12 180 put, creating a bear put spread. This is normally a debit spread but it was done for basically zero cost. Basically a free lottery ticket.
My other option was to let it expire worthless at the end of the week, and hold the short put. Doing it this way, however, allows me to free up that margin.

Putting this double diagonal ER play on for real this time. Weekly options are pricing in about a 10-point move. Monthlys pricing in about 12-13 points. Note that this trade requires $500 of margin per lot per side for as long as you hold the short weeklys, which I only intend to for a few days. Then I can let the long options run.
TradeMonster's analyze tool says I have a 94% chance of achieving any profit.
