Stocks are trading range bound and we expect our April expiration
bull put spreads to expire worthless.
SPY Position Update
SPY closed at $137.72 on Thursday â€“ the April put spread is approx. $1,100 in the black
The March 14th Couch Potato published an April expiration SPY bull put spread
We plan on letting this position expire worthless for an approx. $1,100 gain. However, if prices gap down hard tomorrow then we need to play it safe and buy back the short $134 strike put contracts. (see tables below)
April options expire tomorrow and as mentioned above our put spread should expire worthless
