No fill on CGC.

11:10 a.m. New York time

I’m making another attempt to exit my iron condor on CGC. The position sunk to a debit of $0.76, which is 43% of maximum potential profit. My goal at or above 50%, and so I set the order bid at $0.67.

DIS, after last week’s large upward gap, is trading at $130, which is above the upside breakeven of $126 but within the wing, which provides some shelter up to $135. With 10 days left until mandatory exit (21 days prior to expiration), I’m happy to let things play out without any adjustment to the position.
