The back story: On Monday, I wrote about my interest in the Financial Select Sector SPDR (XLF), and how I was looking to buy Dec. 15 $45 call options if the ETF crossed back above and held its 200-day moving average.
How it played out: I wound up buying to open 45 XLF Dec. 15 $45 calls at $0.56 each. Yields remained calm, markets were green and I sold Tuesday at $0.63 for a nice 11 percent gain overnight. Had I held a few minutes more, the gain would have been bigger.
What’s next: With banks paying next to nothing in interest rates these days, I love treating this bank trade as my personal piggy bank. There’s nothing wrong with trading the same securities again and again if you’re making money.
This opportunity has passed on XLF, but I’ll keep watching it to set up another trade.
