No time like the present to close one of our 3 laddered XBI iron condors for a profit. We collected a 1.20 at the open on our XBI 17 Mar iron condor and can close it now for 50% of max profit. Let’s close it.
SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI): 82.97
ACTION: CLOSE the XBI 17 Mar 73 / 78 put and 17 Mar 92 / 95 call for a net debit of around 0.58 to 0.62
STC the XBI 17 Mar 73 put
BTC the XBI 17 Mar 78 put
BTC the XBI 17 Mar 92 call
