We are placing a STOP loss on the RGLD SEP 80 SHORT position at $3.70 STOP

If this STOP loss is triggered we would than close out our RGLD SEP 82.5 LONG CALL at the Market.

However,if the RGLD SEP 80 SHORT CALL STOP should not be triggered we will keep the position on as a GTC and will decide after the close tomorrow what steps to take with it going forward.

This RGLD STOP order will be placed regardless of how the market looks to open as we are dealing with an equity that is commodity driven, hence a negative equity opening might not benefit our RGLD stock like it could benefit our DECK equity stop.
