Adjustment: When putting this trade on, we mentioned the possibility of adding a [private_monthly]bull put spread on a market pullback. With the pullback we've had since entering the trade, this is a good spot to add on the put spread and take off the call spread as we've reached 70% of it's max profitability. Our order will be priced such that we shouldn't be paying more than 0.20 to buy back the call spread. The short puts have a delta of 0.06 and the probability the put portion of the trade trade expires OTM is 93% .[/private_monthly]
