sell to close the 3 long puts at $0.48
buy to close the 6 short puts at $0.16
Net CREDIT: $0.16
It is VERY UNUSUAL to receive a CREDIT when buying back a ratio spread. This gave me a profit that's even higher than my original credit. That's why I closed the trade instead of allowing the options to expire on 12/19.
TOTAL NET PROFIT: $438.09 SUCCESS!
