#SaxoStrats: Take profit on SPDR Gold Trust option trade

Head of Futures & Listed Options / Saxo Bank

The SPDR Gold Trust ETF touched both the 20-day moving average at 119.08 and the 50-day moving average at 119.17 today with 119.17 traded at the highest point. 

The ETF will find some strong resistance at that level so let's take our profit on the Jun16 116/118 Call Spread we bought on June 1 at $0.77.
