Current mid price for all four legs: $2.65. Bid/ask prices can sometimes be wide, so there is no guarantee there will be a fill at the current mid price. Some traders may get filled at a better credit, others may have to cave in a bit to get the order executed. However, it is not recommended to open the position unless you can get $2.50 credit. The gross margin on the trade will be the width of the spread ($3,000), less credit received.
Update will be posted with exact position details when the trade is opened.
