Trade Adjustment: Rolled 2 Credit spreads on FCEL – 3.06% potential income return in 71 days

On November 24, 2021, I  rolled out and down 2 credit spread bull put options on FCEL stock with a new expiry set in the next 58 days on January 21, 2022. Also, I lowered my strike prices down to $9 and $7 (from $10 and $8)

The aftermath of this trade adjustment: $55.2 (after commissions)

Here is the trade setup:

  • SLD 2 FCEL DEC 03 '21 - 10 + 8 Put Bull Spread -0.89

  • BOT 2 FCEL JAN 21 '22 - 9 + 7 Put Bull Spread -0.86

The aftermath of this trade, 55.2 USD (after commissions) or a 3.06% potential income return in 71 days, if options expire worthlessly

What happens next?

On the expiry date, January 21, 2022, FCEL is trading above $9 per share -  options expire worthlessly and I keep premium - if FCEL trades under $9 on the expiry date, I risk getting  assigned 200 shares and buying them for $1,800

But as I already have collected a premium of $0.27 per share, my break-even price for this trade then is $9-$0.27 = $8.73

In case of an assignment, I will turn this trade into a wheel, but prior to the assignment I will try to roll out this trade
