This afternoon I closed out my September DE put spread for a $140 loss. I said over the weekend that if the stock closed below $82.50 I would cut and run. Unfortunately that's what happened. Today about an hour before the bell I exited the trade right as DE broke below 82.50. Now, I know I said a CLOSE below 82.50, but I wasn't going to be near my computer at the end of the day. So I went ahead and pulled the trigger.
It was my 23rd loss of the year - I keep a detailed record, have a look! So far in 2014 I've got 65 winners, 23 losers and 7 plays were I got put shares or had my shares called.
