Trade Update – GME

Posted by mounddweller on July 25, 2012

Fellow Traders,

I want to give you an update on my GME trade.  You’ll recall I originally opened this trade by selling 6 JUN $18 puts.  As JUN expiration approached I rolled half of my position out to JUL $18 and the other half down and out to the JUL $17.  Earlier this month I bought to close the $18 puts.  At JUL expiration I decided to let the stock be put to me at $17.

Today I sold to open the AUG $17 calls for $0.28.

If my stock is called away at AUG expiration I will close the position with a small net profit equal to a ROIC of 2.36%.  If the calls expire OTM I will continue to sell calls until called away.
