With SPX at 2591 at 11:48 am central today, took off Double Calendar Trade from Friday for $17 credit, about 4% yield. Why did I take off the trade early? Got a little impatient with this quiet market that I don’t think will last, and a 4% profit in 1 trading day.
Got into the Double Calendar Trade Friday for $16.35 Debit. How did it make 4% in 1 Trading Day? Daily theta on this trade was almost $60 for 1 contract, benefit of doing a 17 Day Trade. For more details on original trade, scroll to Nov 3 Blog.
