Options Expiration – March 2017

The only option I had in my account that expired today was an IWM March $135 naked put. It’ll expired worthless and I left it rather than spending a $1 to close the position. I opened a new position to replace it.

While IWM was trading at $138.42, I sold one IWM May $138 naked put for $3.47 and received $346.32 after paying $0.68 in commission. You can see my trade details here on YouTube.

I definitely need to open more exposure and will try to make time for it next week.
