Today's stock price crash has triggered the exit rule for our March expiration
bear call spreads.
SPY Position Update
SPY closed at $134.75 on Tuesday â€“ the March call spread is approx. $1,300 in the black
The February 13th Couch Potato published a March expiration SPY bear call spread
We will attempt to immediately close out this position for an approx. $1,300 gain (see tables below)
DIA Position Update
DIA closed at $127.45 on Tuesday â€“ the March call spread is approx. $1,100 in the black
The February 22nd Couch Potato published a March expiration DIA bear call spread
We will attempt to immediately close out this position for an approx. $1,100 gain (see tables below)
As mentioned above the exit rule for the SPY and DIA call spreads has been triggered and if the market cooperates we plan on immediately closing out these positions. But if the market gaps higher tomorrow we will probably hold off until we get an acceptable sale price.
