Trade Alert – (IWM)

Sell the (IWM) March, 2013 $84-$87 Bull Call Spread at $2.57 or best

Closing Trade-not for new readers

2-7-2013

expiration date: 3-15-2013

Portfolio weighting: 10% = 40 Contracts

This is my highest beta, highest risk position. So while markets continue to stall here I am going to de-risk a little and take some money off the table.

The best execution can be had by placing your bid for the entire spread in the middle market and waiting for the market to come to you. The difference between the bid and the offer on these deep in-the-money spread trades can be enormous. Don’t execute the legs individually or you will end up losing much of your profit up front.

Keep in mind that these are ballpark prices only. Spread pricing can be very volatile on expiration months farther out.

Here are the specific trades you need to execute this profitable position:

Sell 40 X (IWM) March, 2013 $84 Calls at………………. $6.25
Buy to cover short 40 X (IWM) March, 2013 $87 calls at………….-$3.68

Net proceeds………………………………………….…………. $2.57

Maximum profit at expiration = $2.57 – $2.44 = $0.13

($0.13 X 100 X 40) = $520, or 0.52% for the notional $100,000 model portfolio
