The highest high for the QQQ this year was 59.83 reached on July 26. In order for this trade to be a loser QQQ would have to go up to 61.30. Markets are getting into overbought territory. As soon as there is a pull back I will demo-trade the close of this trade, probably won't hold it till expiration.
