  • Apple Weekly Bull Put Spread [View article]
    Apple closed at $566.71, so the spread expired worthless for maximum profits. Apple gained $1.46 for the week and this spread gained $1.90 with much less absolute risk.

    12:22 pm PDT, little more than 30 minutes to go on expiration day and this spread is down to 0.06 cents and looks like it's on it's way to a worthless expiration for maximum profit. If still holding watch Apple closely for a decline and beware of pin risk.

  • Apple Weekly Bull Put Spread [View article]
    11:53am PDT, with a little more than an hour to go in today's trading, this spread has narrowed to $0.55 cents. Apple is at $571.45, only $6.45 away from the short put. Taking profits or partial profits now could be wise. The risk/reward ratio is getting worse.

  • Apple Weekly Bull Put Spread [View article]
    At 7:52am PDT on Thursday, May 10th, the spread has narrowed to $0.69. This is a day to watch Apple closely. You may want to take some profits or partial profits in this area. If the spread narrows even further and you decide to hold until expiration, the risk reward characteristics aren't very good.

  • Playing Apple Earnings With A Covered Call [View article]
    Apple reported yesterday after the close. Today it opened at $615.99, this covered call trade has worked nicely so far. If you sold the $610 call for $25.70 your max gain will be $635.70 if AAPL stays above $610.

  • Apple Calendar Put Spread [View article]
    This trade ended on April 13th and yielded a nice profit prior to expiration. With delta neutral trades you want the price to stay flat and either have to adjust the delta with price movement or exit.

    Sorry about the graphs, I thought I had deleted one and inserted a better one, but ended up with two of the same. I'll see if I can update them. As of today at 7:30 am PDT the trade is showing a profit of $255 per contract.
