July options expire tomorrow and we expect our TLT and GLD put spreads to expire worthless.
TLT Position Update
TLT closed at $128.49 on Thursday â€“ the July expiration put spread is approx. $1,200 in the black
The June 21st Couch Potato published a July expiration month TLT bull put spread
We plan on letting this position expire worthless for an approx. $1,200 gain. However, if prices gap down hard tomorrow then we need to play it safe and buy back the short $122 strike put contracts. (see tables below)
GLD Position Update ---------------------------------------------------------
GLD closed at $153.38 on Thursday â€“ the July expiration bull put spread is approx. $1,000 in the black
The June 27th Couch Potato published a July expiration GLD put spread
We also plan on letting this put spread worthless for an approx. $1,000 gain. However, if prices gap down hard tomorrow then we need to buy back the short $145 strike put contracts. (see tables below)
As mentioned above, the July expiration option contracts expire tomorrow and we expect the TLT and GLD put contracts to expire worthless.
