I’ve updated TLT Analysis with results.

I have two positions expiring December 20 remaining: APA and XOP. Neither is showing a profit at this point and so I shall hold on to them until closer to expiration.

11:15 a.m. New York time

I’ve exited my short iron condor position on TLT for 11% of maximum potential profit. My goal had been to manage positions on Monday, when the markets return to liquidity after their holiday slumber. However, TLT pays dividends monthly and goes ex-dividend on Monday. So I exited the position to avoid any risk of early exercise. I shall update the analysis shortly.
