After the Fed rally this week, the SPY is trading at the upper range of our P/L chart for our core diagonal trade position. We have 43 days left on our long option and our short call is well in the money. If the market continues to rally, we will need to add a leg to this trade. If it falls back, we can manage the current diagonal spread. In the meantime, let’s roll our short call out two weeks and up a strike.
