  • Insure Your Portfolio While It's Cheap, Another Pullback Could Be Ugly And Deep [View article]
    A position like this should not be "unwound." If you wanted to hedge for 60 days, then you would close the position as a combination. If you try to trade into the position or out of the position, you end up assuming risk (unless you were profit taking on only one contract, which is still inherently risky).

    The reason for having several months of duration left in the contracts is so that the contracts do not suffer from rapid time (theta) decay while you hold them. If you would use June contracts and the index approached a value between your strikes, it may cost you more time and force you to lose money when closing the position. This can be seen as the white line and red lines converge over time in the graphic above.

    Bruce, your argument works against you. "Bill me later" is an option for people with inadequate funds who need to pay for something. Paypal charges less than other merchants, which is why it is also so appealing to the mass consumer. Don't forget about the mobile wallet that draws right from your checking account for free. - JH
