This closing resulted in a loss of ($365), 7.3% of the allocated margin. While we did take a loss, it is a bit below the planned max loss of 10%. This trade got off to a difficult start, with little time to collect theta before the sell-off yesterday, and the best risk management in this case is to exit and move on.
As always, stay keen on your risk management and trade carefully,
