Update: [private_monthly]With WFC currently higher than our breakeven at $30.75, we discussed adding a 32/31/30 butterfly to our 31/30/29 butterfly. While doing so increases our upside breakeven to $31.35, it also more than doubles our risk on the trade. Therefore, because we're risking relatively little on the trade, we're going to hang on and see if we can get WFC to pullback a bit more. However, if WFC is trading here by Friday afternoon, we'll have realized the full loss on the trade. So, if you'd rather not risk it, you may just want to close the trade here for a small loss.[/private_monthly]
