Yesterday the Couch Potato suggested closing out the SPY December regular expiration
bear call spread for profit. Stock prices even dropped further today and also triggered the exit rule for profiting from closing out the December Quarterly expiration
SPY Position Update
SPY closed $123.05 on Tuesday â€“ the December position is approx. $3,000 in the black
The December 5th Couch Potato published a December Quarterly expiration SPY bear call spread
We suggest closing out this position for an approx. $900 gain â€“ if you have problems selling the long $137 strike price call as part of a spread trade; we can just simply buy back the short $132 call as a single leg trade. (see tables below)
As mentioned above, the SPY December Quarterly expiration bull call spread exit rule has been triggered and if the market cooperates we plan on closing out this position. But if the market gaps higher tomorrow we will probably hold off until we get an acceptable sale price.
