SPX OPTIONS AND BREXIT -- KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT, PLAN ACCORDINGLY

SP:SPX   标准普尔500指数
The vast majority of SPX             options I play are Friday a.m. settled. Ordinarily, this isn't a horribly big deal, but the fact that these are Friday a.m. settled makes it a "horribly big deal" this week. This is because after NY close on Thursday, I won't be able to do anything with them. They will essentially be "locked" and "settled up" on the basis of Friday a.m. prices, taking into account what the market has done overnight. Naturally, this could be a major bummer because Brexit results are likely to be known when NY is closed and futures will move in the overnight hours. What to do?

First, know whether the options you have are Friday a.m. or p.m. settled. There are some SPX             options that do settle on Friday p.m. (The same goes with RUT and NDX; know your settlement date and time).

Secondly, attempt to avoid taking the setup "down to the wire." Ideally, you should be attempting to either close options setups out in profit with 4-10 DTE             or look to roll a tested side or a side that is "too close for comfort" out for duration in this time frame. (In this particular case, I'm waiting to take this iron condor off until the last minute because I think price is going to be pinned here around 2090 running into Brexit).

Third, if you're absolutely set on taking the setup down to the wire, know your "drop dead" day and time and plan accordingly (I know I'm basically repeating myself here). For me, Thursday NY close is my "drop dead" date and time. I either have to shut the whole show down or roll something out before then ... . I won't be able to do it on Friday.

Good luck around Brexit, everyone!
