- Closed the Call side of the July SPX 2250/2260/2490/2500 Unbalanced Iron Condor on Thursday for a small $140 gain. It was more of a risk management move than a profit taking one. The Call side of this position made me uncomfortable for a while and as planned over the weekend, I would close it provided a positive monetary balanced could be extracted out of it. Looking now at the fact that we will almost have 4 full days of time decay (Saturday + Sunday + Monday with markets open only for half a session and then Tuesday with markets closed for Independence Day). I should have considered leaving the whole position on and then re-assessing on Wednesday morning, with much more premium in my favor. So, that could have been a small mistake there, but on the other hand I feel comfortable now to have put this behind. The SPY 249 strike Call options that had been purchased as upside hedge were also taken off the table.
