UPDATE: Closing 1340/1350 GC Call Spread

Product Manager Futures and Options / Saxo Bank
Gold has failed to rallied above our strike price of $1,350/oz and although we still feel bullish about the metal, with three days to expiration we will close out of the trade. 

Unfortunately, closing today will result in a loss of $2.80/contract (initial investment $5.70).

To close the trade, simply buy back $1,350 for $2.50 and sell to close $1.340 for $5.40 (as of 1400 GMT)

It's unfortunate. Hope you are controlling the risk in your account and allowing to lose no more than 1-2 percent on any trade.

Feders...may I suggest a one std dev strangle monthly is 84% probability of profit SP500 (3yrs and 10yrs data) also try and reduce cost basis and enhance b/e by selling OTM CALL OTM and SELLING a PUT OTM as opposed to buying a call etc as this variation lowers margin requirement too. Failing that consider a straightforward OTM theta decay model with a trade entry 45 - 53 days away from expiry to maximise time decay as the latter can be adjusted to enhance returns. Georgio is providing solid strategies and it will show over time that these strategies do accrue revenue for you. Bad luck with the three duff trades in a row but as other pro traders here suggest you can be right as low as 30% of the time and still have positive account growth of the year. Georgio's trade stand the test of time when applied to other markets over the years and it will benefit your soon enough.
