In today’s portfolio analysis, we offer up a detailed analysis of the XLU adjustment we made earlier. The position was a Short Straddle that was slightly underwater, and all we did was simply [roll it out]( to the next expiration cycle. This adjustment alone improved our basis on the trade and widened out our break-even points. However, we could have [gone inverted]( on the trade, too, by possibly moving our call down from the 51 strike to the 48 strike. In today’s segment, we walk through what that adjustment might have looked like.
