Closing Trade : WFM call spread

Stock / Symbol: Whole Foods Market / WFM
Option Strategy: call spread

Trade entry date: Jun 24
Price at trade entry: $60.07
Price at this post: $65.87

Max Risk: $1075
Max Reward: $175 or 16% by Aug 19th
Profit Range: $52.15 + by Aug 19th
Max Profit at: $52.50 + by Aug 19th

Reasoning: Since we put this high probability trade on, WFM has moved up 9.7%, which should enable us to close out this trade early for nearly the full profit. If you're the patient type, you can hold out for the full $2.50 on the spread as WFM can drop 20.30% by Aug expiration and still have the spread worth $2.50. However, as WFM does report on the 27th (next Wednesday), we're going to see if we can close the trade before then for a credit of $2.45, giving us a 14.48% return in about a month. As it may take a while to get filled, we're using a GTC order.
