The continuing rally was too much for our weekly position; the stop loss was triggered this morning and the position was closed as per the guidelines.

Closing details are as follows:

BOUGHT SPX June 10 2125 Call, 3.50 Debit.

SOLD SPX June 10 2135 Call, 1.30 Credit.

This represented a loss of ($85), 10% of the margin/risk and our pre-set max loss. We still have a good track for the year on the weekly Iron Condor, this is only the fourth week we have had to exit for a loss this so we will just move on to the next trade.

As always, stay keen on your risk management and trade carefully,
