With the markets in rally today, SPY over 136 and one day left in the expiration cycle, the spread looks threatened. So, I decided to play it safe and sleep well.

This culminates the February trading cycle. With 3 little winners. Not the best month, not what I was hoping, but got to manage the unstoppable markets rally with success. I'm proud of that.
