We are recommending the following specific credit spreads.
Put credit spreads = bullish put spreads.
Additionally, We are also closing out our RIG Feb 45/47.5 call spread tomorrow.
We were going to close out this spread early next week, however the judge in the case of BP,the rig owner that blew out 200 million gallons in the Gulf of Mexico, has ruled that RIG is shielded from having to pay many of the pollution claims because of a contract with BP that protects RIG from those claims.
With that news RIG jumped in after hours market so we will need to close out the spread tomorrow.
I will be emailing exit prices after the opening tomorrow.
I am expecting a gap open to the upside so we need to see how this plays out during the day tomorrow. Anyway, we will exiting the RIG call spread tomorrow.
Be prepared to close out the spread tomorrow , you will get an email sometime during the market tomorrow with a indication of what the net debit should be to close the RIG call spread.
