Trade Update – May 17, 2018

Closed the entire Call side of the Elephant:
12  RUT  June 1650/1655 Credit Call spreads @1.50 Debit
Original credit received was 0.55, so this is a net 0.95 loss per spread (-$1140 for 12 spreads)

BUY  12 IWM May 166 Calls @0.64
Original debit paid was 0.29, so this is a 0.35 gain per contract (+$420 for 12 contracts)


The Call side of the Elephant results in a -$720 loss.
Put side remains in play, virtually a winner now very far out of the
money and with a total credit collected that is greater than today’s
loss on the Call side, which will make the position a small net winner
in the end.
