Trade Exit – TWTR Put Calendar Spread

Stock / Symbol: Twitter / TWTR
Strategy: Put Calendar Spread
Trade entry date / price: 04 Jan 2021 / $54.50
Price at this post: $50.80

Update / Reasoning: TWTR, just a handful of trading days from our position entry, has traded 6% lower already. Thus, our put calendar spread is currently up over 25%. I'm going to enter the closing order here, targeting a gain of 40%. At the moment, the Greeks are: -21.8 Delta, 0.7 Theta, and 6.7 Vega. If TWTR trades back up over $52.50, I will likely adjust the sell order to get an immediate fill.

Trade Exit Order:
STC 1 TWTR 19Mar21 47 put
BTC 1 TWTR 15Jan21 47 put

For a min net credit of $3.30 per contract (GTC order, limit order). The mid is currently at a credit of $2.95. To get filled at this price, TWTR will need to trade further down, to around $49.
