My BRK-B bull call spread had one strike in the money today near expiry.

music selection:  “Hold Your Ground” — Cavo

I had the 177.5/180 bull call spread expiring today.  I bought for 1.90 a share on 1JUN2020.  With assignment threatened at close, I sell the spread for 1.6375 per share.  Across four spreads I lose 105 dollars on 760 capital at risk.  That is about 14% over 19 days in force for 265% annualized. I’ve been keeping spread positions small due to the volatility in the market and fortunately only lost 105 dollars.

    So you bought the spread when BRK.B closed at 183.84 (1jun) and sold when it was at 179.72 (19jun). I wonder, what was your target price? Thanks for the excellent blog!

      Target price was anything over 180.00 which would have allowed for the maximum profit. Thanks for reading!
