Two Day Performance of the SPDRs Strangle

Mar 26 2008

Two Day Performance of the SPDRs Strangle

    The SPDRs Strangle of selling a SPY March 140 Call and also selling a SPY March 129 Put has had a nice performance of a two day period. I wrote to only hold the position for one day, which I still stand by. If you had held this position just yesterday you would have had a 21.5% return. That is pretty good once or twice a month.

    I have continued to track the same trade along with sever other trades. The 140 Call/129 Put position did even better today as the position made a total of 68.55% over the two day period of Tuesday and Wednesday. At this point it’s a pretty safe play as the SPY moving down to the 129 level from the current 133.20 by the expiration Thursday is very unlikely.
